THE FISHERMAN at Montauk Point

About three weeks ago, on October 13th, (2013) I came across this brave but happy soul challenging the elements at the very eastern tip of Long Island, NY. The prize was Striped Bass, or some other impressive catch of the season, …and the distant sea birds indicated conditions were good.

I admired his stature, his gear, his tenacity, but wondered about his sanity.

The lighting was breathtaking as sunlight painted the surf through broken clouds.

Then, the sea surged – but THE FISHERMAN held his ground, er…rock.

Just to my right, the historic Montauk Point Lighthouse stood majestically as the clouds came in off the Atlantic

  3. Stunning photos. I grew up in Queens, went to Stuyvesant High School. I’ll be sharing the lighthouse shot with my son. Just beautiful.

    I have a few similar shots from Hawaii . . . only the fishermen were in shorts and sandals.
