New on 500px : Day 894, Beware of the Fisherman by robertrath by robertrath

I watched this fisherman for some time as he prepared his net on the sand. Checking meticulously that all the folds were as they should be I imagine he is already visualising the throw, how the folded form will expand to its maximum area before falling onto the surface of the water.

When he was satisfied in his preparations, his actions already imagined, I watched him wade out into the low surf and patiently wait.

After some time and without warning his net suddenly flicked forward and unfurled exactly as he visualized it would, exactly how it would have done thousands of time before.

I watched it expand and fall gracefully into the surface of the water, … fish beware.
