SkyWatch Friday & Looking at the Sky on Friday -Fishing Below an Amazing Moon-

 Click on photo to enlarge!
This photo was taken on the Cabrillo Beach Pier in San Pedro, California, USA.
The Moon rises in the east as the Sun sets in the west.
People on the pier were all looking in the same direction hardly paying attention to their fishing poles.

Amazing sunset ... the moon in the pink pastel sky looks so lovely. And the composition with the fisherman in the front, makes the scenery perfect.

YIKE! Someone wearing a jacket? It's still hot, HOT here.

I like the subtle colours in the sky. I can see why no one is paying attention to their rods.

beautifully composed shot Carolyn

The solitude of one fishing is so often the payoff. The sky may not last, so get a glimpse while on the pier. The motion of the fish only needs to be felt, not seen - so follow the moon and relax...

Incredible! Very beautiful.

What a womderful picture and the moon sure is amazing! I like the shades of color in the sky.

It seems like most of the old churches in this part of the country have ceneteries. They are so nice to photograph.

Al said...

That looks so beautiful - I wouldn't be paying attention to my fishing pole either!

Lyndsey said...

Wow, what a cook thing to see. :) Wish I were fishing right now. But, since I can't I'll just stare out at the scenery of this photo. Thanks so much for playing. Happy Friday!

That is a wonderful photo, Tisha. I would have stayed to watch the sk grow darker and change colour again..did you?

Oops, sorry, Carolyn! I was busy looking at the posts before me and got the name wrong...:(

I can see by the position of one of the rods that the sky had captured at least one fisherman's attention.
What a wonderful combination, though, fishing and skywatching. Somewhere I have two photos of my late father, fishing in the Yukon River at 1pm and 1am when the days in the far north were longest. It's just barely possible to tell the difference between the two times of day.
Thanks for your beautiful post, Carolyn.
