Day 365 of 365 - Late Night Fishing

Had big plans for a big finish. Been planning this amazing sunset photo for 2 weeks. Picked the location, scouted it and was ready to go. I knew what time to be there for the shot I wanted. Then things change, storms moved in and my sunset was blocked by clouds. Time to back up and punt, got home from Mom and Dad's and the power was out. So I grabbed the camera and tripod and headed to town. I saw this guy fishing along the banks of the Ohio River. The ice breakers in the background. His headlamp and gas lantern the only light around. It was not until I saw the long exposure did I see the other lights in the background.
