Crabpots drying in the November sun. I liked the yellow vs blue colour contrasts here & repetition of the circular shapes.

Daemyeong Harbor, beside the Choji Bridge, faces the southern end of Ganghwa Island, at the mouth of the Han (Gang) River, which runs through Seoul. The West sea or Yellow Sea separates Korea from China.

Hi Chris

The thumbnail really stands out in the gallery and I was not disappointed when I opened the image.
The domination of yellow and blue and repetitive shapes of the baskets emphasised by the white rope make this a great shot.

Regards Derek

Hi Chris,

Wow, you have such colorful crab pots in South Korea. The ones used by crabbers on the Chesapeake are usually dull and sometimes rusty. The color contrasts and patterns created by the stacked pots are nicely captured.


Hi, Chris -
What a fun and interesting image! Bright and sharp with wonderful repeating shapes and textures. Very nicely composed. Well seen and captured!

Oh, this is really my kind of shot Chris. ... love this!! A simple minimalist observation, with great vibrant contrasting colors ... fantastic. I always love the blue and yellow combination as well.
Have a great weekend Chris.

Well seen Chris and skillfully captured. Good work.


Thanks for showing me this on your laptop, Chris - I love the vividness of the yellow standing out so well against that lovely blue sky. Simple but powerful image, very well seen. I think many people would miss this shot.

With blue and yellow as polar opposites, this image fairly sings with life!
Superb composition and details as well

Hi, Chris. The contrast of the colors, intensity and sharpness of these crab pots looks good with the low POV. Good job and a nice Sunday.
