April 10

Fishing the Missouri River at sunset

North Dakota is world-famous for its walleye fishing on the Missouri River. Local anglers get out early in the season, and stay late in the day.  It’s not really that late in April when the sunsets, about 7:30, but it is still time to head to shore when the sun heads below the horizon.

I was out on River Road that runs between Bismarck and Washburn when I saw the sky begin to turn that rosy color that I love so much. I drove to Steckel  Boat Landing and caught a few shots of fishermen as they came off the water.  I caught a few shots of the contrasting colors, the cool blues of the water and the warm orange of the sunset.

Through the trees, upstream a pair of fishermen were the first to dock.  Shortly, the others would follow suit.
