Lined up along the edge of the pier at Howth Co Dublin were these strange looking fishing pots.Not the usual looking lobster pot so I am wondering what they are used for. Perhaps lobster,crab or prawns. Any suggestions?

This is strange, Arthur, we need a fishing expert to tell about.
Fine taken the pattern displayed elements, good depth till far as the boats anchored, in fine clarity - a well done photo, with its mystery...

Buna zuia Arthur, these fishing pots remind me the famous movie cocoon, hope the extraterrestrial aliens didn't arrive in Dublin!
Large perspective and good dof, a picture well taken

I would not know what they are, but they sure make a nice scene with repeating patterns. I love the wide angle view.

these pots are surely curious, the neat and massive rows and their perspectives are very attractive, the repetitive patterns create an interesting graphism. I think that the colours are very much influenced by the moody lighting. I like very much the dynamic clouds, the delightful, blue crevice and the sunny area in the distance. The graphism is great and this place must also look very interesting when people work there. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Love this, I would never in a hundred years have guessed this be Howth, as I have never seen these strange fishing vessels before, and certainly not so many of them. Maybe these are some new futuristic lobster pot for today's more advanced lobsters :) the view you chose creates a very intriguing scene with really excellent depth.
All the best

well, by reading the notes from other TE members it seems like nobody is fully aware yet....me too!
but my guess would be for lobster.
maybe its a good place to hide money! haha
nobody would go poking around in there, just leave it in a bottom one and let it be :)
cool perspective and close up POV

Your composition has turned this fishing harbour into an artistic creation. I love the close details, revealing shapes and textures of the pots but, then, using them as guides to the trawling vessels and the expanse of sky.
They are strange pots!
Maybe just a regional development!
Have a great day,

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled na zamke za lov rakova ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano pristaniste i zamke za rakove.
Kako je prosla sezona lova na rakove ...
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
Nice view of a crab trap ...
A good time recording, contrast and perspective, beautiful colors.
Good work, nice harbor and showed a crab trap.
How was the hunting season for crabs ...
Nice afternoon and all the best.

A truly original composition, I had never seen these fishing pots, perhaps introduced them in the sea and the fish would be put in and is caught, then the recover, with the fish inside, this is my assumption .... the image has a great prospect, with this large amount of pots that line here, beautiful sky that a good bonus to the composition.
Well managed both light and sharpness.
Have a good evening.

Interesting these fishing pots, and the lines formed by them make the picture really attractive! This part of the open sky is beautiful in the image, with a beautiful tone of blue! Very good job!

This is the first time that I see this type of pots.
But your picture is certainly very well taken, with a lot perspective and depth.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
I like the colours and the nice view about the port.
Nice composition, excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Well composed makes great use of pattern and lines and the pot in the foreground with its gaping hole creates FG interest. I don't know what kind of pots they are but they could be IKEA's Swedish design answer to lobster fishing! Plastic and recyclable with no need to repair them - hold on, that sounds like something form Poundland!

Je me posait la question quesque cela peut être !!! sur c'est pour la pêche mais pourquoi....le cadrage est bien réaliser donnant une grande profondeur, perspective et des détails intéressant tout comme cette image
