Some friends, coworkers, and I scheduled a day aboard the Chesapeake Bay charter boat Afternoon Delight captained by Hank DeVito. I have been fishing at least once a year with Captain Hank since 1998 and look forward to a day of visiting with him as much as I do fishing.
Leaving the marina before sunrise I was hoping to capture a good sunrise shot across the water. When the boat turned south as Danny the mate set out lines I decided to go for a sunrise silhouette shot. The sunrise starburst was the added bonus that made this shot really pop for me
Fishing was slow but by the time the biggest fish of the day hit, Eric, the youngest member of our party and first-time saltwater fisherman was up for a turn at the rod.
With the largest catch of his life in hand Eric beams with exhilaration
