Photographer's Note

Again camping holidays july last year in Domburg / Zeeland...

When the tide was out in the evening this guy went down to the sea for fishing. He prepared his fishing tackle days before, waiting for the perfect evening to try his luck. The days were very hot there, around 35°C but at night it can be very cold by the sea. That's why he chose warm cloths and the hat to sit there on a little camping chair and do his silent work.

We watched him in front of a great sunset for a few hours. This pic was taken around 11pm I guess and the sky still glows in soft orange. A very peaceful scene...

I always like pics with silhouettes (I don't know how to write this) of people in front of great colours... I wish I had took this pic one hour earlier when the sky was painted in red and pink.

The beach we chose there is a few km out of the town Domburg, more to the west on the way to Westkapelle. There are no hotels and only one small camping site, by night is very quiet on this part of the beach, no people walking around so it's perfect for fishing and taking pics.

For those who wanna know: between midnight and 1am he was lucky ;-D

Nice day for you all =)

Be blessed
