FISHING on a FOGGY MORNING

by Brenda Nelson June. 03, 2010 8174 views

While these men fished, I tried to capture their images in a heavy fog, which often obscured the river. I decided the set belonged in black and white.

(Some of you have noticed that I'm going back and posting about a dozen shots that I missed during January. I didn't begin until Jan 23, so I wanted to fill those posts with stored shots. Please don't feel that you need to comment on those!)

Good choice to do these in B/W Brenda. It gives the photos a wonderful essence of that morning mist. There is something about going out to the water very early in the morning before the sun comes up. It's about being one with nature. OK it's about the fishing. These are all fantastic shots! I really like this post!

Sadhya Rippon 10 years, 4 months ago

I love this set, and especially the final one. It has a look of a previous century. I think fishing is a very special occupation with a feeling of such stillness and waiting - almost a meditation, and these pictures have captured that feeling.

1st is the best, but all are pretty done, with the kind of mood I love.masterpiece...

Way kool good choice! Fishing is like photography. One must choose right ISO= one must find right fly or lure. One must choose safe spot to stand so no drowning occurs same goes for photographer who is walking the shore line so as not to fall in over ones head and scare fishes? and ruin nice camera? Well done #1 is Tops!!! but I would really like to be in the boat that's in #2... :)

Brian 10 years, 4 months ago

This would lead to a serious decision crisis for me. Do I fish or do I photograph? I have a feeling I'd have my camera around my neck and a rod in my hand:) Very cool shots. #3 is fantastic.

I love them all...they have drama, mystery and the last one looks very old fashioned to me (could be the hat :)). Nice set...especially in B & W.
