SkyWatch - Beginning and end of a fishing day.

Sometimes the sunrise starting a fishing day and the sunset, closing it is a good as the catching part of the day.  I try to time my trip to Henrys Lake so that I will catch the sunrise on the Buffalo River or the Henrys Fork.  Here is the sunrise early one morning last week as I was heading fishing.


Then after a successful day of fishing, interrupted by a nap and getting a load of firewood for the winter.  The setting sun bid me farewell as it went to bed.



Just another wild day in Idaho.

The golden sunrise is gorgeous. That must have given you energy for the fishing and firewood gathering. And your reward was an equally beautiful sunset. You're one lucky fellow.

Well, if the day between the sunrise and sunset was as nice as these photo, then I'd say you had a great day fishing and collecting fire wood. :)

Yours sure is a rough life. ;) Yet I'm glad you're out catching these images and hopefully a few fish too. That sunset is so intense and dramatic.

It never ceases to amaze me how much beauty surrounds us, all the time, every day and night.

One of my favorite kind of posts -- to see the beginning and end of the same day. I aeldom manage that feat myself, so I think you for sharing! Especially since you live in such a beautiful place; those are both just beautiful photos.
