I'm always fascinated by "work boats." The enormous craft that ply the sea in search of fish, at least most of them. Unlike pleasure boats, where us owners lavish love and baby them, the work boats are just tools. Tools that live in some of the harshest conditions, and are expected to not only produce, but protect the crew. They don't try to be pretty.
I gave this image a treatment I thought helps bring out the grittiness and the lack of glamour inherent in these boats.
Once in a while here on the blog I clue you in to another important part of my life... Boating. Like in this post. So it was a thrill for me to find this gorgeous boat in Venice with the same name as my favorite boat of all time. More memories!
When I go back to Venice I'll have to hire this one.
Well, I didn't publicize it here on the blog, but if you are a Facebook friend of mine, you know I have been on vacation in Italy for three weeks. With a few days in Amsterdam thrown in.
Although it wasn't primarily a photo trip (it was an anniversary trip), nonetheless I have many fine images to share with you in the coming months.
Today's post is from a ferry on Lake Como. That's the small town of Cadenabbia in the background. Lake Como is one incredible place. My favorites are always glacier carved, because of the steep mountain walls. Certainly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.
