Beals Island Lobster Dock November 2011.
Just got back from photographing at Jordan Pond and until those are done- here's a placeholder and today's picture of the day. Beals Island is off the town of Jonesport Maine and the character of these places is unbeatable if you want to photograph lobstering. Jonesport is still stuck in the 1970's it seems (in a good way), the only really modern thing there is the Coast Guard cutters at the base there. The Maine harbors that I like are the ones that have a bunch of lobster boats but almost no pleasure craft like fancy sailboats or white fiberglass motor boats. And the more gnarly looking the boats are the better- so in those regards Jonesport/Beals is perfect! It's about time to make another trip up there soon. Here's a map link of the place and then I'm out- have a good one!
Oh!- One more thing, Happy B-day Ansel!
