‘Life On The Lake’

In the darkness
by Marcin Sobas
This set is about anglers, fishers, hunters. I have always admired their hard work and dedication to catch fishes, so I decided to show some pictures.

It’s really hard to float on the middle of the lake in the middle of the night or in the morning and wait few hours for fish.
But it’s very similar to landscape photography. We don’t always get good effects but we have to try!

Lit by a low hanging, sliver of crescent moon, the arch at Joshua Tree glows under the night sky and the Milky Way.

Haleakala Volcano, Hawaii.

best-of-pod-aug-09
Your Shot member Bryan Geiger made an early morning visit to the summit area of Haleakalā volcano in Hawaii’s Haleakalā National Park and it yielded this extraordinary image of an otherworldly landscape.
“I woke up at 3 a.m. and drove to Haleakalā summit,” Geiger writes. “As the sun came up it revealed only a white wall of mist.
After a couple of hours, disappointed and cold, I decided to leave.
While driving back I jumped out at the overlook to see if anything had changed.
At that moment the clouds retreated and I had only an instant to snap this photo of the alien-looking land.”
