This photograph is taken at the Himi fishing port in Toyama Prefecture in January of five years ago. Time has been past 5:00 of the evening and it is beginning to grow dark. I was walking along the quay which encloses the fishing port slowly. The market is already closed and many fishing boats which wait for the departure of midnight were at anchor in the port. The fishing boat which attached many lights other than a common fishing boat was anchored, and it was interesting for me. This is a fishing boat for catching a cuttlefish. This lamp is a lamp to attract fish, seemingly will illuminate the sea by light and will call a cuttlefish. The first feature of the Himi fishing port is a fish catch by a fixed net fishing method, since the Toyama bay had the depth of 1000 m or more, and the cold water of deep sea went up to near the sea surface and the continental shelf is developed to the 5km offing near Himi. Landing of the Himi fishing port is mainly characterized by the sardine of spring, the tuna of summer and the yellowtail of winter. I am going to get up early tomorrow and to look at the fish auction of this market.

each time I see boats and harbours, my heart jumps a little bit higher and this impression is a very moody and very nicely composed one. The photographer’s perspective is excellent. The calm water and the grey colors make the image very attractive. My compliments also for the interesting notes!

This is a very nice image of the harbour through the fishing boat. I am assuming those glass objects are the light bulbs you mention, I have not seen such bulbs before. TFS!

First I saw the bulbs on the picture - a very catching element on, and fine mingle with the marina in view.
An immaculate photojob done, smooth water surface is an asset to the composition, and DOF with sharpness superbly collected.
My cong.s', and have a nice holiday season.

I am really overwhelmed by the contrast between pinkish tone and blue and this shows how actually color can cheer up the shot. A well observed photo opportunity and so well taken with excellent detail of the close up boat with many more features which you have captured admirably. Great dof, good exposure and contrast and love hues of the sky too, a peaceful looking sight as shown by the still water. Great capture
