Morning Moorings

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 18 September 2008 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

A foggy morning over Humboldt Bay in Northern California. The wake from a vessel - long passed - moves under this colorful flotilla of sailboats and fishing trawlers at the Eureka Public Harbor.

[notebook]: This is the first of a series of images from the short trip I took last week.

Very lovely peaceful atmosphere... people being tortured in the financial markets lately should take a look at this.

@hugo poon: ...submitting to torture - so long as you can walk away - seems an unwise path on which to proceed.
