Gone fishing

One from our recent stay in Auckland - as I lived on the North Shore for about 25 years this was one suburb I hadn't spent much time in. The Bayswater Marina is between Takapuna and Devonport and on the opposite side is the motorway into the city - the big building in the distance is one of the main Police stations.


The guys in the top photo looked like they were on a mission with their rods and equipment. I wondered if they owned one of the many boats moored here or whether they were doing some surf-casting from the land.

One for Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup.

I love the clarity of the sky you have captured in thd 2nd. Some fishers here use enormous surf casting rods from land and from a distance look like some weird insecjt waving big antennae.

A lovely scene full of expectation for the day ahead.

Ingo loves to (try to) catch fish. And guess what he´s up to right now. Fish. Not a fan but I even suggested that, a recipe for the NINJA. When he tried with his fishing rod I always enjoyed a good book. Oh, I miss the ocean.

Beautiful shots, thank you :-)
