This really says, "calm", to me. A very appealing scene.
Mary MacADNski: It was very calm. Though there were three or four boats, it was quiet. They maybe were talking about the crazy lady who screeched to a stop to grab a couple of shots.

Great shot!

Makes me wonder if oysters are fish...
Mary MacADNski: They are mollusks - bivalves.

Very nice Mary....i love the colours and the composition....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I would have liked a better composition. I was very quickly stopped on a bridge and got a few shots but mos of them terrible.

Is he going to walk on stilts on the bed of the water?
Mary MacADNski: They will use basket rakes, bring up a clump of rocks, oysters and sand to the sorter on the side of the boat.
Oh how would enjoy fishing there today very inviting.
Mary MacADNski: I think the public fishery ends for the year here soon, so you'd have to hurry....or plan a visit for next year.

Interesting shot, Mary. Oysters around the UK shores seem to be caught in cages; not seen poles like this used before.
Mary MacADNski: They're grown in cages and they are here as well but this is the wild fishery. They gather them in this shot, in basket rakes, bring the clump of rocks, oysters and sand to the sorter on the side of the boat.

I am not the only one wondering how you catch and oyster with the 2 poles smile So I tried to look up and in stead found this recipe:
HOW TO GRILL OYSTERS
Great Grilled Oysters
1.Shuck enough oysters to at least get started. We grill about 12 to 16 at a time.
2.Put them on a cookie sheet on the half shell. (be sure your shucker has released the oyster from the shell, though. if not, you can't eat them without cutting them free later.)
3. Put a small amount of "squeeze parkay" on each oyster
4. Sprinkle each oyster with garlic powder
5. Cover each oyster with shredded parmesan cheese
6. Heat grill to medium high heat.
7. Cover grill racks with foil
8. Place oysters in shells on the foil
9. Replace grill cover and cook until done
10. Remove and serve with saltines and your favorite hot sauce
Mary MacADNski: That seems like a very, very strange recipe to me. I know many eat them cooked but I like them raw.

One of my favorite food groups
Mary MacADNski: Oysters are my very favorite of all foods. Luckily they are readily available and I am never wanting.
That looks an unwieldy piece of equipment Mary
Mary MacADNski: I would say you get strong arms and shoulders from this. Fishermen have to be strong for these old fashioned forms of fishing.
Well captured, Mary.
How strange, what a coincidence - I was watching a programme on TV yesterday about oyster fishing.
Mary MacADNski: Were they showing this method on the program? Many commenters are unaware of this type of fishing. We also grow them and use modern methods, but this old method is common here as well.
Will they sing a duet like the pearl fishers?
Mary MacADNski: I heard some chatter but it was about the crazy woman standing on the bridge
wonder what they caught
Mary MacADNski: My favorite food.
Wonderful capture of this peculiar way of catching oysters.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Richard. We grow them too but this is the wild fishery. It is on water that is not leased so is open to registered fisherman. They rake with a basket rake.

I have never seen this before
Mary MacADNski: We grow them as well but this is the wild fishery. It is on water that is not leased so is open to registered fisherman. They rake with a basket rake.
A most unusual way to harvest Oysters compared with over here.

What an interesting image, Mary. Lovely composition and detail. (:o)
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Rosalyn.
and ready with the giant chopsticks, I see.
Mary MacADNski: No matter how we get them, they are my favorite food.
Oyster fishermen?
I do not know what method of fishing!
A beautiful image, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: They are raking the bottom with these basket rakes. We grow oysters as well but this is the wild fishery on water that is not leased by an individual.
nice working shot here, well done
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Derek. I got quite a few that day.
