There is a good reason coastal regions and boats are high on the list of favorite subjects and the New England coast, with its quaint fishing villages and infinite variety of boat designs, is like a toy store for the serious photographer.
"From 1800 to 1840 Nantucket was the "Whaling Capital of the World" and was the third largest city in Massachusetts. Today Nantucket Island is a popular tourist destination and is the summer home of countless artists and is only accessible by boat or by airplane. There isn't a single traffic light and cars were not permitted on the Island until 1918." Source: www.thegoldenbasket.com

I like the bright red and the few elements to break it up. My favorite part is the shiny color strips in the rope.
