I'm guessing it's a salmon in Hornby

Yesterday I wrote that you don't need ideal circumstances, but they do help. Wind is not good. You may be able to shelter from the wind and still take great photos of its effects but photography is a lot easier without this addition to camera shake. So today (4th October) the weather was very kind. I like sunny intervals as clouds give the sky some texture and they give shadows on the land.

This is Hornby Castle and you are also looking at the river Wenning. The castle is not open to the public as it has been split into private flats, but there is a footpath along the river. The interesting thing today was that fish were jumping upstream. I wish I had a telephoto and a tripod. Still, you can't have everything. Did you see the fish in the photo on the right? I am not an expert but guess that it is a salmon.

Happy snapping

  1. I have been told that it could be a small salmon or a sea trout. Both fish swim upstream to spawn and one can be mistaken for the other. The person who told me this was a fisherman but had not seen my photo.

    Any advance on seat trout?
