The story behind the image
There is something peaceful about boats that have been moored at a tiny harbor or off the beach. Often, they rock gently back and forth, waiting for their owners to take them to the sea. It’s a peaceful scene.
I shot this image near the ancient Roman settlement of Nora, outside of Pula on the island of Sardinia. I liked the fact that this was clearly a working harbour, albeit very small. Some of these boats were used for (commercial) fishing for sure. I also found it interesting that a major tourist attraction, Nora, was right next to the harbour (visible in the back). So in the forground we have day-to-day real work, and in the back we have tourists enjoying a walk in ancient remains of buildings.
