March 15th, 2011 – The Drift

Todays images is a dusk scene from one of my favorite fishing spots; the point at Lincoln Park. During the Salmon migrations in July and August this is a prime fishing location with opportunity to catch a nice King in the 15 to 25 pound range. The fish cruise by this spot on their route to their home rivers in south Puget Sound. Some stop to rest or feed on bait fish that gets pushed up on either side of the point during the tidal exchanges.
This shot was taken on a cold winters evening just before the last bit of daylight. I was trying to find something to use as a foreground element  and one of the larger rocks on the beach seemed interesting. I hadn’t even noticed the face like shape at the time.
