The afternoon was blindingly sunny and hot, the tourists were somewhere else, but this older man was directing the young lads as they untangled a pile of nets for the night's fishing.

Nice to see daily life activity in Dunbar. Informative scene with the men untangling the nets, the boats behind and the bikes to the side. Good lighting and colour saturation. Tfs, Marlene

A fine and interesting capture of daily life with many details to enjoy. Nice to see people engaged in ordinary work. A fine TE contribution with good colours and good composition.

Interesting daily life scene of a fishing port! Entangling fishing nets must be a work of patience!
Perfect blue sky and good management of light without any over exposure, which could have easily happened in the blinding sun!
Thanks for sharing!

Good evening Winifred. I like the way that the lines of the loading area are meeting at a 'disappearing' focal point with the line of the pier. The discarded bicycles seem to show that the lads are keener to work with the nets than they are to take care of their bikes! These orange nets, and turquoise fishing gear are very common in Norway too - maybe it is a worldwide thing. Amazing weather BTW. We were at a wedding in Cardiff on that day, and it was cloudy :)
Warm greetings, Amelia

The place looks like a little harbour of Brittany; interesting scene under good lights.
