Originally, this photo was to be about the 2 fishermen at the end of the jetty, who had been rather malaising over their rods whilst we scoured the shoreline for shots. They were the stereotypical “lifestyle” anglers, obviously settled in well before we arrived, and showing no signs of moving despite the worsening stormy weather. I’ve never tried it myself, but that’s my idea of fishing, for sure.
However, I’d forgotten that, at this distance, the fishermen would be about 3 pixels high… so you can barely see them in the photo.
Fortunately, I quite liked the surreal colour of the sky and the sea in the shot: the sky had just darkened from the sunset, with only a tinge of red around the clouds, whilst the moon was barely visible in the sky. The effect evaporated in minutes, as the redness of the sky faded away, and the sea became dark and featureless.
p.s. I’ve no idea why I’ve written such floury nonsense tonight. Perhaps my creative brain is hyperactive, as I’ve spent the evening debating which of my photos to enter into a local club competition. Wish me luck!
p.p.s. If any of you folks can think of a name for this image of the River Cart, in Glasgow, then please let me know with a comment below. Thanks so much!
