Weekly Challenge: Unexpected

Weekly Challenge:  Unexpected

Walking out on the pier here in Riva del Garda (Italy) not long ago, I wasn’t surprised to see ducks, coots and swans playing near the shore and on the beaches.  The tourists are nearly all gone now and Lake Garda has become a place of serenity once again, for both man and beast!

What I was surprised at though was the fish life!  I’ve done shots in the past, just putting my camera over the water, maybe to catch some ripples that I might be able to use in a haiga or as a background in a collage…once I caught a whole school of sardelle…tiny little fish similar to sardines.  However, I’d never seen the big fish this close to shore!

I’ve three variations of the same photo to show you.  One in it’s original uncropped form, one in focused black and white and the last in sepia.
