Project 365/123 – Crabbing on the Bay


It was a day busy with everyday to-do’s, but a short visit to the waters on a beautiful spring day made the afternoon. With blustery winds, and chop on the water, this Maryland watermen were busy setting out their crab traps for the weekend. It’s coming up to Maryland Crab season, time to do some picking.


Canon 60D, 500mm L. Aperture Priority, daylight white balance, f/7.1, ISO 400, 1/3200 sec. Lightroom edits: cropping, clarity, noise reduction, exposure. Edited in Nik HDR Efex Pro.

  1. Love this photo, excellent captured… :-)

  2. What a contrast of the two vessels! Lovely photo, the ocean water is so blue.

  3. Nothing like Maryland Crab! Lovely capture!

  4. Would have loved to be out there today! Beautiful image!

  5. It’s nice to see the sparkly blue water of spring and summer again, after months of slate grey water over the winter, thank you.

  6. Nice lens effect.and beautifully framed!

  7. That is an interesting photo, when I first looked at it, in the reader that is, I thought, oh no someone has photographed another fishing boat headed to Australia full of refugees, but alas it wasn’t too be. Glad to see you back to using the 60D.

    • HAHAHA ! You really do make me laugh Leanne. Well, they could be heading to Miami Beach too. I didn’t realize Australia had such an issue with refugees, but it makes sese. The 60D isn’t too bad after all. The 7D gets back on Tuesday ! Woo Hoo ! Canon fixed it with no charge, even better.

      • Yep, they are a problem, though not for trying to get here, but the way our government treats them is abusive. Not a good example.
        That is wonderful news, I must admit, I had been confused with the images taken with a 60D, I thought you had a 7D. now I understand. I’ve asked Canon to lend me a 7D and a 6D to try out, so I am just waiting for ones to become available for borrowing, I’m excited to see what they are like.

  8. Love this!! Nothing like an open sea views and crabbing – wonderful life experiences.

  9. The blues in this are absolutely gorgeous!

  10. So beautiful, with the myriad shades of blue! Love the processing too.

  11. I can actually see the crest on the water. Windy…
