Tailwater fishing

A fisherman casts his line into the tailwater of the Normandy Dam, showing little concern for the warning sign above his head. The abundant fish in the Tennessee River and its tributaries apparently makes it worth the risk.

This was taken the same morning I captured the sunrise over the flood plain. A light mist clouds the concrete and metal sluice gate and its geometric patterns.
