The Early Bird

= early morning fishing trip on Topsail 6/22/2012 = first light theme

FIRST LIGHT

The early bird catches the worm. The early photographer catches amazing light.

As I was going through my archives to find a suitable photo for this theme, I realized I need to get up earlier and take advantage of that gorgeous golden hour more often. The world seems so peaceful when you are one of the few awake to see the beauty of a sunrise.

This was taken on vacation during an early morning fishing trip.  - Diane

MORNINGS

Why do fisherman insist on being on the water so early? I don’t think the fish have anywhere else to be during the day. The only good thing about getting up early and going out with the boys to fish is the sunrise. The calm water, the orange sky, the peacefulness of a new day beginning. Ah so relaxing. Then we exit the no wake zone and the fight between man and fish begins. Personally, I cheer for the fish but don’t tell my family that. Swim away little fishy, swim away. – Diane

 

A Topsail Sunrise

SERENE

Topsail, NC. One of the only places you can catch me willingly getting on a boat. Especially before the sun comes up. Every summer I make myself go on one of the early morning fishing trips my family takes. They fish with hooks and poles but I fish with my camera. Sunrises like this are the only reason I go.  - Diane
