    Default Last dayof the season at Bemersyde

    There I was planning a day’s grayling fishing on Saturday, when Splash calls me on Friday evening. “Your brother-in-law (Dr Philgood) and I are having a last day of the season bash on the Tweed on Bemersyde tomorrow. Fancy coming down and taking a few photos? It’s a really picturesque beat,” he says. OK, says I, and I get myself round to Splash’s house for 7.15 a.m. as agreed. It was a nice clear morning in Edinburgh. Huh – to think the forecast was for fog tae? Cannae forecast ****-all!

    Still nice and clear going over Soutra, and through Lauderdale, and to the pie-stop in Earlston. Clear, in fact, until we got a few miles from the river, whereupon it closed in on us. Right in on us. Pea-soup! Er, well, hopefully it will lift, we say. Well, it kind of started at one stage, but then it just got worse…. and worse.

    Well, it was a challenge to get some shots. High-key was a good option! No problem to isolate your subject from the background – there was no background! There was no contrast, or colour either for that matter, and I make no apologies for calling in the troops in the form of Adobe RAW 4.3.1 to rescue the day for me.

    Here's the link...

    Really nice, very atmospheric photos, a few POTM winners there.

    Incidentally is that ice on the rod rings in 2156.jpg?

    Sure was at -6deg it was a constant problem all day particularly with the shotting head. I think I should be on the cover of T&S with those shots Col

    Aye, you said it! It's no problem doing boat fishing - you can stick the SLR in the tackle box, and it is easy enough to put the rod down and pick up the camera. However, river fishing and photography is really a two-man job, whether you are on a muckle SLR or a wee compact - hence the reason we've been working at it as a team. Maybe I'll get a shot at the fishing next time...

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Really good pictures, fantastic light, the sort of pics that makes the athmosphere creep through the monitor and into the viewer. ;-)
