The St. John's River is home to the Mayport Naval Base, and a huge and growing commercial port for container ships and other freighters.  But, it is also host to quite a few commercial fishing enterprises, particularly shrimpers.  I posted a photograph of this pier a while ago sans ship when the tide was in.  Obviously, the tire and other debris lodged in the mud indicate low tide for this photograph.  Some might feel the debris sullies the image, but I will disagree.  This is the reality of a working waterway that gets some pretty heavy use.  It isn't always pretty!  (Film)

Very nice. One of my favorite shooting spots. The tires do add to the ambience.

Thank you, Doug. I suspect I, too, will continue to stop at this place to capture something different over time.
