“I wish I was a fisherman, tumblin’ on the seas
Far away from dry land, and its bitter memories…

…with light in my head, you in my arms, woo”

Calm, balanced and a bit taciturn was the first approach with the ice fishermen. But after a brief chat about technique, wheater and the right fishing lures the ‘ice’ had melted.

Some as hunting…  …and for some is it a complementary livelihood. This images I took in late February at the frozen river Volga in the city of Tver/Russia.
