Boat Friday

 

This was a fly-by shooting from the car when we were at the IJsselmeer driving to Enkhuizen, NL.

[If I could do it over again, the boat would be on the left side with space to move forward.  HA!]

But I LOVED the fishing nets for catching eels!

I have never seen nets like this before, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I had never seen them till coming to the Netherlands, Ray. But then, paling/eel catching is a huge Dutch industry!
I've never seen anything like it! It's wonderful - and you did a lovely job of capturing it in your fly-by!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. The Dutch love their paling/eel! It's a huge industry here in the Netherlands.
Very nicely shot. Especially so as it is a drive by.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. I was delighted it came out in focus! smile

This is a grand view of that 'viskotter'. I never get tired of pictures like these. I love the colours of the water and the sun on the nets.
This is a wonderful shot!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. It was such a delightful day from beginning to end. I hope Nicholas will never forget it!

I never saw such a boat - the fishing nets look like a 'human bean' - a wonderful photo! And I like all the gulls!
Ginnie Hart: I love when they hang out the nets to dry like this, Philine. And on a perfect day, it felt so "romantic," like what books are made of.

You have really mastered the art of "fly-by" fishing, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love the thought, Lisl. grin
You could always flip it and photoshop the number back in the right way round grin
Ginnie Hart: You are way to industrious, Bill. grin
Actually that wouldn't work....it is a bit early grin
Ginnie Hart: Exactly. It would be the same problem going the other way. HAHAHA! Are you now awake?! I suppose someone else would clone it out and then flip it?
That looks like a pair of giant Longjohns Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Leave it to you, Chad! grin
Wonderful capture with these fishing nets Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard.

Good thought on the composition but you often have to grab what you can. I don't think much of his sails; they are full of tiny holes wink
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Alan. Something is better than nothing, in this case. Those nets surely do NOT make good sails. HA!
He he... That's a huge stocking! Ideal for Christmas. wink

>So I Googled it and discovered it’s in southern Hertfordshire.
*Yes, counties around Greater London are known as Home Counties, all easily accessible from London. smile

> “Old” is a relative word, you know (especially for those of us from America), so I wonder just how old these houses are! HA!
*Circa 1500, I guess.

Superbe trouvaille
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
What a great find, Ginnie. Unusual and interesting.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun what we find at sea, Mary, Isn't it!
i don't know how that all works but it's a very impressive sight Ginnie. Well captured while you were flying by
Ginnie Hart: Me neither, Janet, but I sure love seeing it!
A judge at my club would comment about your 'wrong' composition but we're not at my club and I for one find it a really interesting picture so who cares what's right or wrong, we're septuagenarian's, we do as we like.
Ginnie Hart: At least I KNEW what was wrong, Brian, and...exactly. At our age we can break any rules we want, mostly! smile

Beautiful shot for a fly-by with the car!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Scarlet. I was so glad to see that it was in focus! smile

Ginnie, I'm not sure why but your photo reminded me of Jules Verne as soon as I saw it! I love the widescreen format...
Ginnie Hart: That's fun, Petra, to think of Jules Verne with this image. Our minds play weird tricks on us, don't they! smile Thanks.
That's funny - using a strange pair of pants as a sail smile
Ginnie Hart: I never thought of the "pants," Tom, until a couple of you mentioned it. HA!

What a great capture (and from the car, no less)!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Hollie. I was delighted to find it was in focus. smile
that's a really neat shot, what are those diaphanous nets? soooo pretty!
Ginnie Hart: Those nets catch eels, Elaine (huge Dutch industry!). The nets are so configured that once the eel swims in, it can't get out. Ingenious (leave it to the Dutch)!
Those fishing nets would make some amazing macro photography! Oh my, love! Great drive by shot!
Ginnie Hart: You'll have to come back to see this stuff for your own photo op, Robin!!! smile

C'est un appel vers le large
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Sabrina.
Eels... ew... great shot though...
Ginnie Hart: I know. The thought of catching eels almost does me in, Larry, but the nets make great photo ops!

The whole picture is intriguing, the nets in particular.

What a fabulous photo smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. Needless to say, the Dutch know all about these nets since they're part of a huge industry for them!
