The Icelandic Harvester.

When I came across this old vessel moored to the pier my imagination started running wild with scenarios of what life aboard this wooden vessel would have been like. I could almost feel the sineous texture of the ropes as they hung there coated in the ice cold saltwater of the frigid North Atlantic Ocean. I could nearly hear the calls of the sailors as they shouted commands back and forth across her weather beaten decks as the waves crashed down upon her on any one of her numerous voyages. What sights must have been seen as sailors of old lined the rails to peer down at the mysteries of the sea. How many men were lost at sea and how many made it home with wild stories of his adventure aboard the Icelandic Harvester.

Shot with a Canon 400D and processed in Lightroom 2.

Ice Breaker
by Kevin Kroeker
I think it is an outstanding image with great composition ( great leading lines) with lots of drama and the colours are amazing . It shows us the harshness of the climate.

    Holy Talido!! This is spectacular………I’m a big fan of making the rope a leed in to ship photos. You did brilliantly here Kevin. The HDR work is floor less. A special favorite.
