    I posted this for Mitchell Hirsch. It's a picture of a fisherman landing a salmon at the Presque Isle Falls in the Porcupine Mountains State Park in Michigan's UP. This is "one" of my favorite Michigan photos because it shows people enjoying our natural resources. I said "people" because there are 3 people enjoying this scene although only one is in it ... My wife enjoyed the hike (albiet with my interminable stops to take pictures) and I of course enjoyed photographing the scenery.

      Great shot Jim. I guess the salmon is the only unhappy one, eh?

      LOL! I guess I hadn't considered the fish's point of view Andy! On the other hand he's headed upstream to meet his maker anyway ....

      Presque Isle was a HUGE highlight of my UP trip last June. My boyfriend & I took a hike of about 2.5 miles. Normally that'd take us well under an hour, but this time it took most of 3. We had to stop about every five feet for a waterfall, huge old-growth tree, scenic vista, etc. We named this "delay" the Ooh-Aah Factor.

      Did you take this shot from that little swinging bridge?

      Thanks all for your kind comments.
      Cowtools - I crossed the bridge and came back up stream on the West side of the river and took this picture. Your right, the hiking trail has a lot of Ohh Ahhh spots!
