“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after.” – Henry David Thoreau
“The fish in the water is silent, the animals on the earth is noisy, the bird in the air is singing. But man has in him the silence of the sea, the noise of the earth and the music of the air.” – Rabindranath Tagore

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.

  • Thank you Scott. I like to get those pictures that happen outside the camera for just a few seconds best.

    The inclusion of the seagulls makes this – and they are perfectly placed in the image to give the impression that it is they who are fishing…

  • Thank you. Yes, I was thinking about general sunset pictures when the three gulls walked in, just like that.
