I was fascinated by the sign. It says:"Anglers only...." I passed by several anglers' signs, most of them are quite restrict..
This is another world that it's hard to comprehend for me. The weather was fine on the very day, even not very warm. I could never understand the anglers sitting in the cold winter rain waiting for the small fish to bite the hook, since "The one that got away..." was huge. :-D
Taken on Llandudno pier.

I just have to admit that I find this picture comical, the contrast of the mans (Anglers...) shirt, the blue of the sea and sky and the stark white of the signs is perfect and crisp!
Really well photographed, perfect weather.

Well, I used to fish quite a bit with my Dad many, many years ago but that was always river fishing for trout. The hobby can be quite addictive but I've never fancied the idea of sea fishing - I think that needs a much harder and stronger character as well as a complete resistance to the cold weather!
This is a very well seen and taken shot with exceptional detail and clarity and so very much better with the inclusion of an actual fisherman too. His bright orange top is quite striking, it draws attention and it is in strong contrast to the beautiful blues of the sea and sky.
Perfect composition and exposure, lovely true colours and excellent detail and sharpness.

A humorous picture that points up the eccentricities of the British to good effect. Nicely framed and very well presented.

I like this photo very much for the good light and clarity, the distinct features and the bright orange contributed by the fisherman. I wonder if children have to stay away because they sincerely worry about their safety, or if they worry that the children will scare the fish away.
