Revisiting Peebles this last weekend, it was hard not to notice the River Tweed, and especially the large number of fisherfolk trying their luck with the native salmon.
Of all the people I saw standing up to their nether region in cold, cold water, I have to report no sighting of any fish on anyone's hook.
This guy was trying his luck below the Dryburgh Abbey House Hotel, but equally to no avail.
I liked the low light behind him, causing lovely patterns on the water, and while I would give more weight to others of the dozen or so pictures I took for composition and technical merit, this is the only one that showed the line as I hoped.
Whether that is a matter of his ability to cast, or mine at pressing the shutter, I care not to comment !

great catch! Very interesting action photography. Well used silhouette set against a wonderful pattern on the water. It is surprising how different photos we have presented from these days so far!
It was a pleasure to meet you Martin and thanks to your plan to go north I will end up having two new counties added on my UK map ;)

une scène de pêche intéressante, en contre jour, avec une lumière agréable sur la surface de l'eau.

This is such a peaceful scene, I would much rather there right now than anywhere else, the sense of calm is strong and the soft light so relaxing.
Thanks as always
