Great composition Liz!
Thanks Chris 🙂
Beautiful image, Liz. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia 🙂
What are they fishing for in False Bay?
These smaller boats are handlining, catching reef and some shoal fish. At this time of the year they’re after snoek ( barracuda family), geelbek (Cape salmon) yellow tail, some tuna, albacore. Recently though we’ve been keeping a beady eye on a trawler which is experimenting in laying octopus traps with a view to commercial exploitation. We’re hoping that there is too much of a groundswell for it to be viable. They form part of the diet of seals and otters; take that link out of the food chain, then what?
Lovely capture with the gulls following the boat. Heading for Kalk Bay maybe?
Yes, we get a lot of passing boats from Kalk Bay 🙂
For me, the birds make the shot – nicely captured Liz!
It was one of those kind of days 🙂
