I continue with impressions of Danish harbours and boats. The place is the harbour of Egernsund, a small community of 1600 inhabitants located in South Jutland between Flensburg Fjord and Nyboel Nor. In the background you can see that here is also something rotten, it is at Egernsund shipyard, details will follow with my next photo.
Fishing is an important sector in Denmark with a long tradition. In 1995 nearly 3,000 fishing vessels landed 1.9 million tonnes of fish. In 2005 sligthly more than 2,000 fishing wesels landed about 800,000 million tonnes of fish. When spotting small fishing boats like this one I always start reflecting upon a recent statement of the EU-commission responsible for Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries: ”Denmark has a long tradition of fishing which should be protected by taking the measures necessary to promote the recovery of a growing number of fish stocks which are depleted as a result of years of overfishing. Danish fishermen know too well the effects of too much fishing: dangerously small stocks, reduced catches and fish landings, shrinking income, job losses and the continuous weakening of coastal areas. The fishing pressure on fish stocks has urgently to be reduced, the madness of subsidising the building of vessels that threaten fish stocks and lose fishermen jobs has to be stopped”. Funny enough I have been offered frozen mussels from New Zealand at the local supermarket that day!

Hi Harriet. Mussels from NZ! Shame they were frozen, they are much nicer fresh ;-). Great photo. Good colours and composition. Nice handling of light also. Thanks for sharing.

Even more original looking boat than the previous one. Bright blue colours look good. And the reflection is so nice that I actually would like to see more of it at the bottom of the frame.

Great photo of this little fishing boat. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The reflection is nice giving the shot good depth and balance.
pablominto (53744) 2008-08-20 7:39
I notice the well proven design from ages back, now in modern materials!
Nice portrait of this little workhorse, documenting this part of Danish fisheries...
Well framed image, good colours and details!

Bateau bleu sur ciel bleu avec un arrière plan qui possède de la rouille,la partition est belle.
Du bon job cette image.

A cute small fishing boat, which has also nice colours. The reflections on the undulating water are beautiful. Thanks for the good note too.
holmertz (31322) 2008-08-20 11:55
There is certainly something rotten in the whole EU fishing business, bordering to madness. Still it's nice to watch pretty little boats like this one, casting fine reflections in the water.
Very fine colours and an extra compliment to your always interesting notes.
dareco (17134) 2008-08-20 15:57

A nice little bot and a well exposed image, the two blue tones on the basement are very nice.
Have a nice day JY
lestans (16896) 2008-08-21 2:34
Hi Harriet!! I like your colored boats!! Here you made a good composition, showing us lots of details describing the boat and the surroundings of this place.
Most of all I like your way of looking at colors, brava!!
JanP (1705) 2008-08-21 3:37
Wonderful picture - you're doing great on boats.
The puffy clouds combined with the strong colors gives this shot a really swarm feeling.
Well caught reflections too.
Venlig hilsen Jan
saxo042 (33930) 2008-08-21 7:03
Yes, boats are always an attractive motive! Her you have found very good colours and the reflections are excellent. A beautiful day in the height of summer!

In meiner Badewanne bin ich Kapitän.....fällt mir dazu spontan ein.
Tolles Bild diese minibottes mit einem schönen Hintergrund.Schöne Spiegelungen und win wunderschön leuchtendes Blau.Gut gesehen und gemacht.

Du hast mit diesen hübschen kleinen Booten eine feine Serie begonnen. Diese Farben, auch im Wasser gespiegelt, sind sehr reizvoll. Die Muscheln aus Neuseeland hättest Du im Workshop spendieren sollen :-)
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

I like your idea of this sea scenery,lovely light and colours,a well composed action picture,superb balance and a lovely perspective
thanks for sharing
feather (51128) 2008-08-22 6:58
There is good light in the image particularly shining on the water and the reflections are beautiful. By lowering the camera slightly, standing further back or reducing the focal length, the full reflection of the boat would have been included. The slight diagonal perspective is good.
danyy (0) 2008-08-22 13:39
beaucoup de naturel, pas de superlatif ici, un petit bateau humble, mais qui jette de tellement belles couleurs, qu'il en donne aux reflets un si belle occasion de leur rendre honneur.
scroller (3407) 2008-08-22 21:55
Its now time for you to create at theme with boats and vessels used for bussiness purpose. Its a good reflection mabye a bit cutted. In all a pleasant composition.
Cricri (92213) 2008-08-24 10:28
Un joli décor des couleurs du bâteau avec le ciel bleu et les trés beaux reflets dans l'eau que donne la belle lumiére du moment
Good evening for you
Glint (5911) 2008-08-24 13:20
this looks like a toy boat that should be Captained by Captain Pugwash.Seems hardly big enough to catch a shrimp!
Lovely colours and reflections.Nicely composed on the diagonal.
Bluejeans (64243) 2008-08-25 5:34
Belo plano sobre este barco de pesca os reflexos sobre as aguas calmas ficaram magnificos , belos tons de azul , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
patdeph (35744) 2008-08-27 4:20
the colours of this photo are superb,with the blue of the boat reminding the blue of the sky,it's superb,and I like the white part of the boat making a very nice contrast that lighten the compo!The reflections on the boat anf on the water are splendid,and give a nice texture!
gilou530 (34) 2008-08-28 9:52
ce qui me frappe dans cette photo c'est la netteté super nickel, des couleurs naturelles pour un bateau plein d'authenticité,beau travail
clio (27955) 2008-08-30 6:24
Bravo, to photograph at the same time the boat and the reflection it is still easy because the colors of the reflections are much darker often and it is difficult to find the good exposure. You perfectly succeeded and your centring is excellent.
Please continue to show us of so beautiful sights of Denmark.
jmdias (48359) 2008-08-30 18:30
beautiful the colors of this boat, the place is nicely shown too. I liked this light and sharpness.
gunbud (34066) 2008-08-30 19:23
I have to put a star on this one because I love this lovely little blue fishing boat as it is seen making a striking reflection in the riffling waters and sitting against this lovely powder blue sky.
The colors are brilliantly clear with exceptiaonal sharp details to this little beauty.
mafegan (8622) 2008-09-07 15:43
A crisp clear photo of this little boat even if the scene behind is 'rotten' - quite a contrast. A nice reflection, Marlene
jafadabret (56497) 2008-09-15 3:59
J'aime les belles couleurs du bateau et de l'eau. Les reflets sont aussi très beaux. Beau travail !
jimkilgallon (0) 2008-09-22 11:29
Excellent boat with well defining features and a beautiful reflection. The cyans are strong here and you chose a very good perspective. NZ mussels are devine however even more when fresh.
Regards as ever
francio64 (38254) 2008-09-26 23:53
bella immagine del peschereccio e del suo riflesso nell'acqua.
Ottima la gestione della luce e lo sharp.
