Surf Fishing at Caspar Beach

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 25 July 2010 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

This was a rugged stretch of coast line. I was surprised to find a fisherman near the edge of the water where the rocks were difficult to climb to. He was fishing into the wild surf. He reminded me of so many from the Gulf of Mexico who have lost their jobs, their livelihoods, their recreation due to the BP Oil spill.

Continue praying with me for their salvation.

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

The violence and beauty of that water is so perfectly captured in this dramatic frame, Laura. Man against the elements. The thrill of the persuit and the lure of the danger, a balance as played out on a daily basis.
