The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral – Setting Catfish Traps

On a normal day, you can see the marshes and woodland that lies about 100 yards across the water. On this day, the fisherman was less than 100 feet offshore, in dense fog. This is a full color photograph taken on Kodachrome 64 with an Argus C-3 camera. The camera was fitted with a screw-on telephoto add-on lens. The slide was scanned to a digital image. I was about 12 when I took this photo, but it remains one of my favorites.
