The Rise

This past weekend, I met a couple friends for a day's fishing on Willowemoc Creek. I was walking back to join the crew when I decided to fiddle with my new camera awhile. You see, one bugaboo picture for me with my other camera was any picture that featured a dark shaded shoreline. The camera usually compensated for the darkness and the photo would be ruined.

Well, there was Richard mid stream, a nice dark background, and a perfect opportunity to see what this camera can do. I fiddled with the manural exposure settings to see if I could happen upon something I liked. I snapped quite a few pictures.

Wasn't I surprised when one of the images showed a rise - the very fish that Richard was intently trying to fool. Never in a million years could I capture such an image on purpose.
