Hey all – my first post on this site so I’m not sure how it works, but here goes…
Leica m240, elmarit 16-18-21mm lens…set I think to 16mm, f22.
I had been fly-fishing Montana’s Madison river for the past four days, getting pretty frustrated at my lack of success. Fishing and photography are not so compatible, as the best times for both are late in the day. I finally decided to set my rod down and try my luck with the camera. The challenge with this composition was the sun was in one place, and the river led your eye to another. To try to balance the image, I decided to include the sunlit grass on the right side of the frame. I’m not sure how successful it was, but I was more happy with this image than I was with the 10 inch trout I had caught earlier that day. f22 and the sun just dipping at the horizon enabled the long legs on the sunstar. Hope you like it.
