Lobster Trap Christmas Tree
Rockland, Maine is a beautiful location. I used to do a farmers market there selling my homemade cookies.
As I attended the weekly market I started to learn more and more about this quaint little town. But what got my attention was this Lobster Trap Christmas Tree.
I couldn't even imagine what this tree would look like. So come December I made my trek to Rockland to get a look at this tree. I remember the day well. Around Christmas time I headed to Rockland to photograph the infamous Lobster Trap Christmas Tree. It was cold, very cold and there was some snow on the ground. As I pulled up across from where the tree stood, I was in awe! Truly an amazing sight to see! I paused for a few moments just looking at this beautiful tree. Then I started looking around for different view points to photograph from. Got my camera ready and then I dashed across the street and started clicking away. Then I'd run back to the truck to warm up, then back I went to photograph some more. Until I was satisfied with what I had photographed.
The next day I headed into photoshop for some post processing. I spent hours looking for the right combination of textures that would work for this photo. I absolutely love the end result! I love vintage feel I created. And what about that shiny lobster on top!
Here's a little history about the Lobster Trap Christmas Tree. The world's largest lobster trap tree! Since 2003 local volunteers of Rockland, Maine have been building this lobster trap tree which consists of 152 lobster traps each weighing 40 pounds, 450 feet of garland and 125 lobster buoys that represent local lobstering families. The tree stands 30 feet tall with a 5 foot fiberglass lobster to finish off this beauty of a Christmas Tree.
A unique Christmas Tree indeed!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays Everyone!
Be Safe this holiday season!
