I enjoyed the whole nautical vibe I was getting when I went out to shoot in the mornings on our vacation to Maine. It’s not quite the same feeling here on Lake Champlain and around the Burlington waterfront at sunrise when I am out shooting as most of the boats are used for pleasure and recreation. It was nice to be out and see all of the hearty souls preparing for a hard day of lobsterin’, Most if not all of the boats that I saw in Frenchman’s Bay were used for the purpose.
While poking my nose and camera around the dock area in Bar Harbor I came across a long line of small power boats all moored together gently moving on the morning waves. Something struck me about the shapes and lines looking down on these boats and I thought this image would fit in well with the nautical theme I had hoped to capture here. I wanted this one to have an old-time feel to it so I added a bit of grain and made the edges lighter rather than darker.
