Gone Fishing

Post by minniev » Mon Jul 30, 2018 4:47 pm

The boat nearest us when we all got swallowed by a fogbank that behaved like a live animal. After that, there was no way to take a picture that was anything but all white till we emerged from it. The captain of the tiny rusty tub we were sailing about with turned out to have no radar, no radio, even forgot his cell phone. He navigated in this mess using a fish finder. It was quite an adventure.

Thank you. My fog doesn't look or behave like this so I was unsure, especially about the tonalities for the conversion. But there wasn't much color, basically everything was dull blue.

A memorable moment and a truly awesome image. That is a gallery submission if ever there was one.

Masterful, m'am. Wish I could get those tones. I agree with Duck. The bend in the pole, the tar-like water, the layers of light -- unique moment, well captured. Matt

There have only been one other time I can remember seeing rolling fog such as this and that was while we were in Maine a couple of years ago.

The timing of this scene is spot on a fabulous catch for you AND the fisherman. I love the composition and your choice to convert from color to B&W. Your description of the shaky circumstances makes for a great fish story? Only with the camera tho !!!

Thanks Matt - but don't sell yourself short, your monochromes are lovely.

Thanks, Dave. It was a strange experience. I wasn't really worried, the fellow who'd taken us out seemed to know his way around the strait, and it wasn't nearly as unsettling as some other things we've got ourselves into. I wished I'd found more boats or whales to capture against that white rolling wall, but I was happy to get what I got.

I've been staring at this one for a while now and each time I see a different title representing the great state of Mississippi. S-
