    Thank you very much for your kind comment! Where is this fishing pier? Is that Alcatraz in the horizon?

      Yes that’s Alcatraz in the background. This pier is the one at the foot of Van Ness I think they call the SF municipal pier.

    What a marvelous shot with the island in the distance and the people messing with their fishing tackle up close and the great light.

    The simple yet delightful sky is the perfect backdrop for the easy breezy fishing scene.

    Very nice, Ewok. I like the way the cloud divides the sky into two colors on the diagonal. And the sailboat next to Alcatraz is nice touch as well.

    That stone wall is great for those fisherman, sitting or laying against it for rest and support throughout a day of fishing.
    Great picture!

    So love that fall of cloud behind the ship! IT looks like the slope of a mountain! And a wonderful play of shadow shapes to help weave a story round the scene!
