Scene & Story | Abstract...



The fishermen arrived at the same time as the snow... so instead of going out on the lake in their small boat, they made a shelter between the truck and a fence, pulled the boat inside, and fished from the shore. For hours they endured gusty winds blowing snow straight at them, but they never quit.

All day I watched it snow, and watched the wind blow. We stayed until mid-afternoon, and I was happy for the extra hours, keeping the fire going and reading, glad I was snug inside.

Sharing today on Scene & Story, a monthly gathering from Sarah & Lee.

    1. When they first started to wrestle with the tarp, I thought they planned to shelter underneath it. But they spent the whole time (several hours) standing or sitting on the lakeshore. Determined indeed!

  2. Your photo really captures the cold, snowy-blowy feeling of the day. Those are some dedicated fishermen! I can't imagine...I'd much rather watch the swirling snow through a window, preferably with a warm drink in my hand and a good book in my lap. I've enjoyed browsing around your site here this morning. Your cabin by the lake sounds wonderful! I also loved your photography bucket list - that's a great idea. Thanks for joining Scene & Story!

    1. Thank you, Lee... while I enjoy traipsing around in the snow with my camera in hand, I would prefer being a spectator. And I am definitely a fair-weather fisherman!

    1. Especially when the wind is blowing like it did today! A good book, a good view out on the snowy world, a fire, and a cat curled up next to me. That would be the perfect way to watch the snow fall.

  4. I hope they caught some fish! I love the way your photo captures the wild weather outside. A warm fire and good book would definitely be my choice for this day!

  5. Determined fishermen!! I might walk in the snow, but I'm not interested in sitting still fishing in the cold! Great image!
