The Upper Harbour, Whitby, UK

The final shot in the HDR series from Whitby harbour.

Crab/lobster pots litter the harbour side. The fishermen are waiting for settled weather before risking thousands of these pots which could easily be smashed during stormy weather.

Some of the crews are fishing several thousand crab pots, and will attempt to lift as many as possible every working day. Each pot could yield several mature lobsters, and big money can be made on a good day.
