Cheers, Ritva

I really love this photo Bits, the colours are so different to the "normal" ocean pics, and you have a bit of everything in it, incl. the seagull,boat, fisherman, waves, rocks - and I would say he sure has a fish on his hook.

So intent was the man upon his fishing that he failed to notice the rising of the tide, and the consequences thereof.

Great shot Bits, did you wet the bed or something?

Thanks guys! LOL, Ritva and Guy, I think fishermen are probably the only people more foolhardy than photographers when it comes to stalking their quarry! And Dianne - there's one other remarkable catch here: SUNRISE! No, not due to Guy's typical excuse ;) but to being away from home, when it's easier to get up and on the road early (the funny thing being, when I got back to the house at 8 a.m., everyone was shocked and had had no idea I wasn't still sleeping, lol)

Wonderful shot, Bits! Well worth the sacrifice. We who stayed in bed appreciate your doing this for us. ;-)

Thanks Marilyn ! If I lived near here, I most likely would see a whole lot more sunrises than I make the effort to catch where I'm living now. Its a pretty magic sunrise location.
