The story behind the image

Here’s another photo that can add a bit of maritime spice to your life: Typical green fishnets. I captured this in Eckernförde in Germany.

The harbor of Eckernförde used to be a busy working harbor. Firstly, there had been a vibrant fish industry, and secondly, it still is an active military harbor. At least the fish industry has been reduced to very few boats that still go out every night or morning to pull in their nets. Usually, when they return to the harbor, they sell off some fish directly from the boat. It’s an interesting sight and experience for all senses. These few fishermen put some of their nets out for drying or for repair.

I love the richness of this shot, the complex structure of the network, and the bright colors of the rubber buoys. Nice.
