Photographer's Note

I had been on board the cruise ship, 'Royal Viking Sun,' plying the waters of the British Isles, when the ship docked in Aberdeen, Scotland. On a shore excursion on a bus, I visited some of the area's famous lochs —including Loch Ness. Although fully prepared to shoot the Loch Ness monster, unhappily I did not see it!!!

When the bus stopped momentarily on a bridge over a river I saw the fly fisherman from the window of the bus. That pause was a stroke of luck. The telephoto lens on my camera, extended to full focal length, would have been impossible to steady, had the bus been moving.

The fly fisherman is seen standing in the river, his line flashing against the dark waters. The ten year old image was produced using an old Nikon 2020, loaded with Kodachrome-64 slide film.

I want to thank Zeca (from Brazil), who has an excellent pair of photos of a fisherman in his photo gallery for inspiring me to post the photo of the fly fisherman.
