Getting Off-Line at home and getting On-Line at the lake - A great way to spend the morning!

During a 2 hour hike along the lake early on Sunday morning I found this fisherman right after sunrise enjoying a beautiful start to the day!

Now this is the way to start a day. I love you comment about getting of line and on line. So true. It does'nt matter how fancy the equipment, to be out enjoying this beauty will be the same. Such a gorgeous scene with beautiful colors my friend.

What a beautiful setting for this happy fisherman! ... Well, I figure he's happy since he can spend the morning like this! The mood here is so serene and relaxing! The colours of the sky are gorgeous! Fantastic capture, Jeff! ... but is that a Shark's Fin I see in the water? LOL! :)
