Sunrise Fisherman

Posted by
Jerry (Tampa, United States) on 6 March 2007 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I wasn't the only crazy guy up early Sunday morning! Here we have a dedicated fisherman waiting for the big one - the monster that pulls him over the rail, through the bay for 3 hours and finally out into the Gulf before tiring! He was still waiting when I left - maybe next week...

Canon EOS 30D 1/60 second F/14.0 ISO 100 40 mm
