My youngest daughter and I went down to the park one Saturday morning to hang out before swim lessons. It was the foggiest morning of the season. I was shooting this and that when this gentleman just appeared out of nowhere. It was a busy Saturday morning, with a lot of the men getting out on the water. Right after we left at 8:00, they started a fishing tournament.

This is one of those simple perfection photographs that we all dream of taking. Your composition and timing of the moment are spot on and I can all but hear the sound of the outboard pushing out of the mist. A top-rater.

Wonderful Capture! I have something similar from MT. St. Helen's but it is just a snap shot nothing so pretty!

Yes he always has that hat on LOL and if it is not on his head it is hanging around his neck LOL ( he is not aloud to wear it in class LOL) We got on just like it for Zachary ( he just ardors the boys) and just this week i bought a red and gray one for Zoie so she can have one but be more girly LOL

Well we have 2 less tree's! no one was hurt and nothing was broken! well other then the saw blade LOL someone has placed a spike in one of the tree's and it grew around it!

Dave had a limited area to fall the tree's, the bigger of the 2 brushed up against my windows on the back side of the house but not one scratch or crack! I'm so proud of my guys!

What a wonderful serendipitous shot. There is nothing better than being in the right place at the right time and of course having the skill to capture it.

Odd time to do a fishing tournament to me with all that heavy fog.

We had beautiful fog over in our part of the world yesterday morning and I was just too tired to will myself out of bed into the cold. As Murphy's Law will have it, in a week's time when I'm on holiday, there probably won't be any fog to shoot in.

Beautiful atmospheric shot.
