A spear fisherman getting ready to enter the unkown at dawn. Not sure if he did this for sport or food.
Let him go down, I'll just sit here and look at the sun coming up :)

Hello Jacques.
Great sunset capture, very well.
I like this reflections.
Thank you for sharing.
Have a nice day, best regards.


Hi Jacques,
An excellent sunset. The clouds seemed to be radiating from the sun and those powerful waves were so intimidating. Best of all, there was an element of interest -the fisherman.

Very very nice shot. Loved the sunrise. Great.

Hi Jacques,

Good composition! I like the two natural diagonal lines caused by the waves of the ocean. They lead the eyes of the viewer to the silhouette of the spear fisherman. The rays of the morning sun were vividly captured also in the photo.

Thanks for sharing.
