There were tons of fishermen at our motel.

The morning mist creates a wonderful mood of expectancy! Nicely captured Jack! ;-)

Guys going fishing, the mist, the exhaust of the boat. You have simply captured a part of life for those who live on the water. And we can drift off to our own fishing experiences.

Becky from los angeles, United States

It really is a great shot - It's like joining in - climbing in the boat - I can't catch fish - it makes me too sad - but I love going out and pretending like I am - especially in the morning - with the dew and the silence.

5 Oct 2010 2:44am

@Becky: The good news is that, at least for most men, fishing is not about catching fish.

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

Very cool with the smoke. Did you get to get on the salt with them?
