    Great effect. I’ve wondered about getting DAP but, when I tried it, I felt I didn’t have the control I wanted. I’ll have to try it again.

  • Thank you for your kind comments and the ‘Fave’. They are both appreciated,

    Our North American east coast is craggled with tiny harbors filled with the leavings of things that supported back breaking and scary sea harvesting. And as I peer through your window I’m tugged to an almost identical spot in E.Dennis, Ma peering through the inlet to Sesuit Harbor. And I’m remembering all about Northside Marina’s clutter of legacy from past people to the guys who power through that opening into the North Atlantic. You’ve captured a placid ghost-line so wonderfully….

  • Thanks Ted. There are still hundreds who make their livelihood doing this daunting task. in the Canadian Maritimes. While this scene may look scenic & tranquil, it is a working fishing village.

    Ditto Sesuit Gene. But the interesting thing is the capital inheritance of docks, buildings, inlets, bridges, roads… and lobsterpots… that have been bequeathed to this generation of men-who-go-down-to-the-sea-in-ships. Eh?
