Afternoon off ...

At this time of year, things tend to slow down a bit, so I took the chance to go fishing on our local lake one afternoon during the week. We did not catch anything, but some of the other boats did.
As a photographer, John McDermott rates very close to genius. Some years ago he toured New Zealand with Gary McCormick, doing a series of television programs known as 'Heartland New Zealand'. In the subsequent book about the series, John McDermott had a photo like this one above. Only his was really good, dark and brooding, but with the sense of speed. You can see more of his photos here but I do not know if the one about which I speak is here.
The problems I had in the above photo was trying to keep the grins off the faces of the subjects, and the rough ride I was getting on the small chop on the lake.
Lewis McGregor, Trevor Mills and Brian Dark were very good company for the afternoon, and a good time was had by all. It is true, a bad day's fishing is better than a good day at work.
