Gone Fishin'

I was impressed that these teens were out net fishing just after dawn on a Saturday morning.

Sometimes when I'm out wandering and photographing things, I take a photo that doesn't impact me at the moment of pressing the shutter, but when I get home and see it on computer, I really, really like it.

This is one of those photos for me.

About three weeks ago, I had a sleepless night with my back and about dawn I decided to get my camera and go take some photos in the morning sun.

Lovely wife is an early riser and woke up before I left, so we went down to Melbourne Harbor Marina, one of my favorite local photographic haunts.

We parked in a park next to the marina, the Crane Creek Promenade, a nice walk along the banks of Crane Creek. (Which is a great local place to see and watch manatees. Sadly, no manatee sightings on this morning)

The marina is located at the mouth of Crane Creek where it meets the Indian River Lagoon.

I used to get up at the butt-crack-of-dawn when I was a teenager and go fishing for bass in the local bayous in Monroe, Louisiana with my friends way back when, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised to see these fellas doing it.

First time Iʻve seen net fishing from bridge mooring ... looks a lot more dangerous than casting from shore.
