Good Evening, The first three photos at low tide remind me of the Bay of Fundy ( Nova Scotia). Are they Lobster Traps in the forth photo?

Franklin,

I have titled the images now so it will give you an idea where they were taken. The crab pots is one of my best shots, I have it in colour and sepia which also look good.

Great shots of Halifax Harbour, I bet thats getting rough weather there this time of year.

Hello all, well we get qite a few ships passing off the headland which you will see in the accompanying photos. Sometimes they even come into the bay at the West side of the house (sorry, but we don't get a wonderful view that way) where they are not too easy to photograph. You may wonder why they enter the bay, simply because it has two of the oldest known settlements in northern europe at Jarlshoff and Scatness Broch, there is speculation as to which is  the older but both are around 3000 bc. Plus the spectacular view of the Sumburgh Head roost and the precariously placed lighthouse. ( I do wish the guy with the torch wouldn't keep flashing it into my sitting room window three times every minute ) As you can imagine there are more ships doing this in the summer months than at the moment.

cheers

Jim

Hello all, a slightly abstarct photo taken within the boat hall of the Shetland Museum and Archives. On display in a multi layer presentation are the types of fishing yoals used from the 16th century through their deriviatives to the 20th century before being superceded by the steam drifters from teh mid 19th century.

Hello all a pleasant coastal view again taken in September after a slightly windy day or two ( I still had to hold onto the car ) from the Ward of Scousburgh loking NW over the small townships of Bigton and Ireland. Not any boats in this one I'm sorry to say.

cheers

Jim

p.s Yes, Tango it is quite a beautiful rugged and scenic place to live. It beats any city any day  :)

This is a photo of a little wooden plaque ( 8"X4").
My lady and I used to paint these up in our spare time and sell them here at the marina's gift shop!
She'd paint the backgrounds, and I'd do the tugs!
Now we're both way too busy :(


Also, a picture of a couple of aluminum signs I bought on ebay a few years back! 8)
