Gone fishing, been fishing, caught nuffin

Five county reservoirs have been opened up for fishing this year. This one, Curtis Reservoir in Elmhurst hasn’t been fish-able for 9 years. The water is still way too cold to catch anything really but saying that, an old man in a sheriff’s hat told us he had caught three perch on the previous day. Give it another week and the fish might start feeding properly. Will still probably head out this evening if it’s warm.

Shortly after taking this photo, this 90 year old lady walked down to the ocean, stripped off to reveal a mermaid’s tail and headed south for winter. Unfortunately my camera ran out of battery.

Lola knocked me out and tied me to this post. Fortunately I chewed my way free before the tide came in 🙂 Bad Lola.

Another shot from last week’s trip to Cape Cod.

Scene from Jaws?

Remember the scene in Jaws where they find the first girl’s body and the policeman throws up? This scene I found in Cape Cod reminded me of that for some reason.

Don’t know what it is about this photo but I like it very much.

I think this might be my favorite beach shot of the trip. It’s clear simple and I love the white streak running through the water in the background.

I cannot describe how bitterly cold it was down by the beach. I could barely work the camera but I was quite pleased with this one. I’ll process some more tomorrow and share.

Fancy a swim?

Ok I’ll stop with the HDR processing now. It was just a phase I was going through. 🙂

The back garden was a picture this afternoon. Lola and I got married between those trees 🙂
