Default Must be keen, or mad.

Hi all,
Cold, windy, miserable weather today, so you must love fish a whole lot for dinner to stand out in it.
I think they're crazy, or am I to stand there hands shaking with cold to take the pic.

I would also get out for the shot, not for the fishing. But I would eat them. Nice shot

Don't know who is crazier, the fishermen or the photographer. But if the fishing is good, it would be worth it. The picture was definitely worth a bit of discomfort!

Sitting here looking at my husband who just arrived home from a day of fishing, soaked from his armpits to his toes, I can attest to the craziness of fishermen. But, no I don't think you were crazy for standing out in that to get that shot. It's a nice one. Definitely tells the story!

The best of two worlds is to take your camera with you when you go fishing. Then you can have dinner and get nice moody shots like this.LOL

I said that long time ago: guys with tripod and fishing pole will go where no sane person would. I know, I did both things.

A friend of mine fishes by the "CPR" method - Catch, Photograph, and Release!

Great mood in this photo!
