Fishing at Sunset (NIKON D5100 1/320–f/5.6 200mm)

In photography, sometimes it’s the details we don’t see until later that make the biggest impact. In the case of this photo, Fishing at Sunset (Wallaroo, South Australia), I was so mesmerised by the warm colours of the sunset when making the photo that I didn’t even stop to see the two people fishing off the jetty. Only upon a digital zoom into the photo later that evening did I see them.

They’re dwarfed by the massive machinery next to them and the beauty of the sunset unfolding behind. Is it a father and son? A father and daughter? Are they friends or brothers? I’ll never know. I prefer to think it’s a father and his son spending some quiet moments together. It reminds me of when I was a child and we’d go on family holidays. I actually never liked the fishing, but I have come to appreciate the preciousness of a shared moment.

      You’re very kind to say such things 🙂 Thank you. There are always so many things to learn, and I have only really seriously been doing this for a few years. I’d be happy to have a chat if you have any questions at all. And thank you for connecting to my blog also. It’s night here in Australia, but I wish you a great day !
