This is a Photo of Lobster fishing boats Salvage Newfoundland and Labrador province of Canada.
It was a cloudy, rainy day in the area of Trinity bay, Newfoundland (in the beginning of September). I like taking photos in these kind of weather conditions. I simply loved all the cadet blue gray tones of the sky, clouds, landscape and water in contrast with the colorful fishing boats. For sure it’s the foggy weather that made people paint their fishing boats and fishing tools in bright colors – Orange and red are the most used – beautiful!
Salvage is a small fishing village on the Atlantic Ocean, Canada. Obviously, fishing is the main activity that people are doing for a living here. I’m not an expert in fishing but I believe that we are seeing a lobster fishing scene, considering all the lobster traps aligned on the wooden wharf. The buoy floating in the water marks the place where lobster traps were placed.
I was particularly attracted by the reflections of the boats in the mirror calm water of the bay, that looked almost metallic. Those tones somehow remind me of the blue pigeon colors.
This is just one image from a series of photographs of fishing boats in Salvage Newfoundland. I’ll have a whole article on this beautiful picturesque area of the Atlantic Canada.
