    Not a local local but arrive in Mevagissey a few years back and runs out with a few pots to catch Lobsters and crabs. There is a lobster fishery in Cornwall which now breeds and releases small lobsters into the sea around its coastline. It does mean a lot of undersize lobsters are caught, but these are put back. The return from this project is though reaping its rewards for such fishermen, who's catches of good size lobsters are now growing yearly. Nowt here to do with Crabbing but looking after his punt.

    Fine image and back story Julian. The rusty chain adds much to this image.

    Brilliant. I like these shots of your looking down into the harbour. The chain leads in perfectly.

    Wonderful, Julian! Instantly captivating. What is he doing? Is it legal? haha. Could be praying. Did he fall in, and is up to his waist in mud? Don't answer any of these questions, which are purely rhetorical. A fine, engaging shot.

    Thank you all. You have each now got me wondering what is at the end of that chain. Wish I'd looked over or maybe not. I can only know as rob does imagine, many thought come to mind and none thankfully to disturbing.
