POTD: Fishing on the Edge

Title and Location

Fishing on the Edge

Location: Cape Hatteras National Seashore
Camera: Phase One P30+, Mamiya 645D, 55-110mm
Settings: f/11, ISO 400, 1/125 sec
When: November 2011

Cape Hatteras is the most easterly portion of the eastern seaboard.   This location is unique in that storm currents from the north naturally flow in a southerly direction while storm currents from the south flow in a northerly direction.  These storm currents collide off the coast of Hatteras Island.  Fish get carried along by the currents as well which makes for great fishing.

The fishermen were congregated at the point where the waters collide.  I took several photographs and stitched them into a unique panoramic image of fisherman, choppy waters and stormy skies.
