Fishing trip

Getting ready on the beach in the evening at Almuñéca, where Laurie Lee stepped out one mid summer morning in the 1930's. Back now after days of endless sun. Thank you for all the visits and comments over the last two weeks.

Looks like 3 generations of fishermen.
Great light and colors.
What a beautiful place.
John Prior: Thank you Sidney.
A typical scene. Here, the old men inspect the nets - as I see one is doing here. They leave the young ones to go to sea.
John Prior: Thanks Shelia. Apparently a lot of illegal fishing happens here as this region has the highest unemployment in Spain.
Gorgeous light and colour. I love the fact that two of the people are rather smartly dress, and the cat is a delightful surprise. (:o)
John Prior: Thanks Rosalyn. It was lovely there.

No great sense of urgency to set sail. I like this very much

Wonderful candid capture. Light and tones are superb!

Surveying what they own, lovely capture and light smile

A really good candid John, I love the colours of the boat and the sweeping arc of the beach and rocks.

I like the colours of the little boat; nice picture of working people.

many people for such a little fishing boat.
The colours are amazing!
John Prior: Thanks Grapf. I was told the old men just help prepare the nets and leave the fishing to the younger ones.

Beautiful blues, and I like the "three generations" aspect.
