Sublime and Beautiful Sunday Fishing

Sublime and Beautiful Sunday Fishing

This post is for #SublimeSunday is inspired by @c0ff33a and #BeautifulSunday is initiated by @ace108.

Now I am not a fisherman myself, even though some on here are trying to convince me it is good, relaxing etc, its just something i have never got into myself, I get the idea of it being relaxing by the water and fun trying to catch a fish, I emphasis fun to try as from some of the local fisherman I have spoken to both here and where I used to live in CT, that often they catch nothing but its the trying that make sit fun and a big bonus when one catches something.

I will continue my thoughts on this but first a photo

Now the reason fishing is not for me is I am a hyper person I like to keep moving, some say I have two speeds full steam ahead or asleep LOL

so the idea of standing still say on a pier as in this first shot for half an hour or more hoping a fish would bite just isn't for me, I an more happy walking along and taking photos of the people fishing and the scenery.

But that all said I will say fishing in the early morning with a nice fresh breeze and the colors of the sunrise must indeed be a sublime and beautiful feeling

Now I have taken shots of people fishing ina few spots and selected a few to edit and share in this post, just now as I am preparing this post I realize all the shots are in the same spot on the pier here on Rodent French Blvd

This is a guy I often seen there in the early morning and have chatted to him a few times, I am not sure he would want his photo online so I have gone with him more as a silhouette, as he is preparing his rod and line before walking out on the pier.

And for the last shot I will stick with Sublime and Beautiful, but also a bit frustrating for me, this is an Osprey who has a nest just off the Harbor walk and I have seen him fishing many mornings and catching a fish and then flying in a loop over the harbor walk and back to its nest, but just about always in the distance and out of reach of the lens I have on, or I have the settings wrong.
So I \came up with a plan, I watched it for a few days and worked out the time it generally goes to catch a fish, then got my camera all set and put on my big ( and heavy) long lens the Sony 150-600 and went and waited in a position I though I could get some shots of him diving for, catching and flying back with a fish.

Lets just say the best laid plans do not always work out, I went there for maybe 5 mornings in a row just to try and catch shots of him, but those days he just sat in the nest for the whole time I was there, which was between half an hour to an hour each time ( which standing still and waiting patiently for that long is so hard for me as I mentioned earlier.

A couple of days later I was walking the harbor walk luckily with my 24-240 lens and caught this shot of him, a terrible shot I now but the best I ever got this year
