Herring (Explored)

Normally I would probably not have posted this shot, had it not reached Flickr Explore, the 500 most interesting photographs of the day. My 53d to do so, but my first since December last year. The herring is the famous Dutch fish that is usually eaten raw (in the salted version), sometimes in vinegar. In Hasselt, a small Hanseatic city near Kampen, they were selling them smoked, and my wife had one. Tasted good. These are sticks of raw herring waiting to be put in the smoking oven.
