One lone fisherman keeping the faith on a cold blustery day. It is colder here today than Minneapolis. Want to talk climate change? 🙂
I love the reflection in the water! Beautiful

I too love the reflection! It even “looks” cold. Great photo.
Beautiful photo, Judy. I love how the pier is reflected in the water.
Oh no! That cold? But you captured a beauty of a photo…..
i love all beaches and lonely beaches minus PEOPLE are my favorite beaches of all
The weather people love to point out that it’s colder in Pensacola than Anchorage. And when did we start naming winter storms?
Do you need to know the name of a storm because I sure don’t. 🙂 Yesterday morning the weather man used a term that I couldn’t even grasp as a word. Then he commented that for those of us who weren’t familiar with the term to stay tuned and he’d explain it. I hit the off button. They have made weather forecasting into a big, scary event when in truth it is still just weather that can change at the drop of a hat. I hope your weather is treating you kindly. 🙂
Beautiful photo and, yes, we need to talk climate change.
We’re back into the frigid too – and today, more snow. Another good day for staying away from the beach and hunkering down at home.
Yes, yes! So very beautiful.
I try never to talk about climate change. It’s one of those polarizing subjects like politics and religion…and, unfortunately, almost everything else these days. But I love the shot.

The list of things that are politically and socially correct to discuss is getting pretty small. 🙂
That’s an enormous loss and problem for our country. If we can’t discuss civilly and maybe agree to disagree, we have big problems and not much chance of solving things we need to work together to solve.
I love your choice of black & white for this image. It’s timeless! I love the lone fisherman, and reflection too.
I wish I could tell you that was black & white, but it was natural light. It was a wicked cold, blustery day. That fisherman was maybe mid 20’s and bundled up in winter clothing. I still couldn’t help admiring his determination. 🙂
Oh I love those kind of images. They have lovely hues of gray or blue.
Very nice. Sometime gloomy days are the best time to take pictures.
Great photo Judy, that could be part of a photography exhibition. Clearly you are doing just fine with your camera on automatic!
…and the weather…it snowed in some parts of Australia yesterday, mid-summer!
Oh my goodness, there is really something wrong with our weather cycles. It was in the 20’s here today and tomorrow around 60. I do pretty good except I sure couldn’t get a moon shot. 🙂
Nice shot, Judy.
Yes, the weather is more than insane these days. Nothing surprises me anymore.
Cold, but beautiful!
What an expressive photo! Nicely done!
That’s a beautiful shot / made me shver ; I could feel the cold
Fisherfolk seem to be a hardy lot.
J > A wonderful composition. I didn’t realize you had piers like this in USA as well. In the UK they started as piers for coastal vessels offering passenger to mostly holiday makers, and were sometimes associated with nearby railways (in some places, the railway actually extends/extended to the end of the pier), but gradually adopted also the paraphenali of British (mostly English) seaside entertainments – side-shows, ball rooms etc – often a bit disreputable or shabby (or both) This one in your photo appears to be entirely respectable and tidy, but then might also be purely practical.
It is called the Garden City pier. It has a restaurant and games that you have to walk through to get to. It is only open during the warmer months so right now it is quiet and deserted. I kind of like it that way. 🙂
J > So similar to UK piers. Like you we prefer such things in their winter mood. We met when studying at Portsmouth, which is a seaside resort, naval dockyard, university town and commercial city all crammed on to an island: unbearably hectic in summer, but lovely in winter
My first thought was: I’ve been on that pier, somewhere in the UK! The cold and damp definitely came through in the photograph. It’s beautiful. I can imagine walking for miles along the shore, picking up shells and watching the shore birds.
When we were in SC for Christmas we were a little disappointed that it wasn’t warmer. It was mostly jacket weather, though, which was still a big improvement on Chicago.
We were spoiled last year when it was unseasonably warm. This year, it has been unseasonably cold. I guess it balances out. Mid 50’s and bright sun today – can’t complain.
At first glance, I thought it was a pier somewhere in England! It’s beautiful, Judy.
We have just had some now after a lot of rain. I wish we could help out in South Africa, we have so much water here.
