Fishing in the Fog

Discovery Park, Seattle

Began the morning with fellow 365ers Donna (@dhostick) and her daughter Paula (@kittyree). We began very early and very much in the fog and with me picking the wrong trail. Despite the misturn we found our way to the beach and eventually to the lighthouse, not without a bit of slipping and sliding on the rocks and seaweed. The fog was so thick for a while I wasn't even sure I was going in the right direction.

But we were graced with herons (at least 3), a large flock of Canada geese, seagulls, crabs, small fish, sea stars, one sea cucumber, spitting clams and a pocketfull of collected sea glass. Oh and Paula carried a rock a long way to give to her dad. The fishing was good for the herons, I have several shots of them with food in their beaks, but focusing in the fog was not easy and not all are good. The fish in this one was so clear I was astonished when I was going through all the shots taken today.

We managed to find our way back to the car as the fog was lifting and the thunder rolling in. My companions left to ready themselves for the wedding they were attending tonight and I headed home to become the driver for all the boy's activities.

Slightly better large.

edit: crop, move to B&W (though there wasn't a lot of color going on to begin with), some curves and exposure play
Beautiful shot of this heron. Coincidentally, I posted a heron today, too. Love the reflection and the little splash of water.

Nice one, Shannon. Sounds like a lovely hike and this heron is beautifully magical looking. Boy did that fish struggle for its life

wow, beautiful clarity here! I'm still working on sorting through my shots (and haven't even downloaded Paula's yet) - was wondering what you would choose! I had such a wonderful time, and Paula was so excited to show her daddy the rock today. Hopefully you were as amused by her flip-flops between the ew, this is gross and cool I want to see that moments as I was ;) Thanks again for a marvelous Saturday morning!!

This one is beautiful too! I like the b&w, the reflection, the water drops and the fog gives you a great background.
