They say a bad day fishing beats a good day at work. Or maybe that was a bad day golfing? Whatever … this image is from a really bad day fishing.
My son, Ryan and I went for a day of deep sea fishing out of Southwest Harbor, Maine, last summer. I loved the early morning fog and took full advantage of it before the boat departed. We were optimistic that the fog would lift and we’d have a full day of productive fishing and gorgeous views of Mt Desert Island.
Unfortunately, the fog never lifted. We could never see further than 100 yards in any direction. If that wasn’t bad enough, the seas got pretty rough. The party boat started to look more like the morning after a frat party boat – if you get my drift.
And the fish? Well, you are looking at the catch of the day.
I like the fog shading in the background.
I love, love this photo…my favorite kinds of photos are ones which show minimalism and negative space. This a perfect example of it. Well done!
This shot is much better than any fish!
