Saling and fishing boat frame Silver Lake Light

Silver Lake is a harbor in Ocracoke North Carolina. A commercial fishing boat docked early in the morning with nets still hoisted high and adjacent to a sailboat. The scene created a good foreground to frame the Ocracoke light. Fishing and sailing are keys to American heritage and culture.
