Lysfoss heads into Cork

A large cargo ship of the Lys Line company called "Lysfoss" makes it’s way into Cork while a small fishing boat is tied to the pier in Cobh.

In the distance the harbour pilot can be seen heading for the small harbour in Cobh.

It’s fascinating what comes up on Google:
The Lysfoss went aground (pdf) in 2001. This page says a vessel of the same name was in dry dock and had repairs made on 2 separate occasions.

Gone fishing

Two fishermen enjoy the sun while a huge container ship, the Maersk Derince, passes by in the background. You can see they’re very busy. Even the gull that has landed close by is watching intently.
It’s another hectic day in San Francisco.

Technique: I wasn’t sure what to make of this photo. I love the composition, especially the background to this sedentary activity. Unfortunately it was very misty and colours looked washed out. By converting to b/w and playing around with the exposure I think I produced an interesting looking photo. Finally, adding a vignette around the edges focuses the eye on the fishermen in the foreground.

I like this: Plane landing via Podz
