Optimism?

Fishing rods at Hatchett Pond, in the New Forest.

I don't know if the fisherman caught anything, if he did he will have put it back, fishing as a sport here in the UK is not to catch and eat the fish.

I may not be online much between now and the New Year, we have visitors. I'll drop by when I can.

Best Wishes for a peaceful and happy Christmas.

hey ellie,

oh my, this is quite a contraption. i have never seen the likes of this! well spotted, and a great capture. i cannot imagine going through all of that work to catch a fish and have to throw it back! have a merry christmas and a happy, healthy, prosperous new year.
Hiya Ellie. A very well photographed picture with absolutely super focus, although DOF is a touch out in the middle; possibly slightly wrong focus point. Pretty damn good though. Kindest wishes, Neil.
nice symmetry! smile

That is a contraption to beat ALL contraptions, Ellie! I wonder if fishermen feel that way about the fancy photographers amongst us who set up their tripods and camera lenses! I know some fishermen fish with 2 poles but I'm pretending this is a husband and wife team. (Actually, the wife is probably off somewhere with her cane pole.) smile
