For Easter weekend, we continued our family tradition of going fishing on Good Friday & the next day. As I get older, the more I realize what an outdoor lover I am at heart- how it makes me so happy just to be outside, surrounded by nature.
One of the things I look forward to most is anticipating what type of spectacular show Mother Nature will put on for us each morning & evening as the sun crosses the horizon.
Our first morning out, we departed the docks under a nearly full setting moon & the sun slowly ascended from behind a bank of low clouds just hanging on the horizon.
Watching the bay all around come alive with the morning sun, catching the suns reflection off the top of the waves, and taking in the rainbow of colors in the sky is a great way to start the day.
The moon wasn’t as full as it was last year, but supposedly a full moon makes for more challenging fishing conditions.
Our second morning, we were already out of the boat and wading on an oyster bed as the sun started to rise and paint the sky brilliant shades of pinks, yellows, and reds.
So these photos were all taken with my iPhone as I’d left my Nikon on the boat while I was out wading. I was really thrilled with how they came out- especially capturing the light and shadows that radiated upward into the sky.
We were supposed to be fishing the other way, with the wind & sun at our backs, but I stopped for a few minutes to just enjoy this amazing scene & attempt to capture it with my camera.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: We’re having a really nice spring so far- I’m getting outside & enjoying it every minute I can.
