"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver

[QUOTE=Redoleary;355378]If this isn't exactly my avatar its close enough. It took a lot of trys to get it. It was pitch black out and I was "painting" the canoe, tree, grass etc with a flash light.
That is a great affect. How long was the shutter open?
