Sunrise on the Water


My father in-law passed a major milestone in life on his last birthday. This year he celebrated his 70th birthday. If you know him, you cannot help but love him. He is one of the most gentle men I have ever known. For his birthday my wife and I decided to surprise him with a day of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. I captured this image of him as we were departing from Madeira Beach Florida. The fish were not the most cooperative that day but that did not hinder us from having a great day at sea.

Making memories is a special honor. Your silouette and sunrise is lovely. Your Father-in-law is fortunate to have you in his life.

The sunset is very beautiful.

What a great tribute your words are to your father-in-law.

This is a fantastic shot. Your father in-law sounds like a great man! Which I guess should not be a surprise since you have a wonderful wife. :-)

Thanks to all of you for your lovely comments. My father in-law is a great man! He is very kind, considerate, and gentle. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. Even though he has fought and won a battle with cancer and passed his 70th birthday, every work day he has his 18 wheels on the road earning an honest living.
