Rise & Water

A Silver Creek Rainbow slashes through early November, crystal clear, spring water.

Prior to taking the images above I waded about stomach to chest deep and the water got pretty close to the top of my waders.  No big deal.  Slow current.  Business as usual.  When I finished shooting I took 2 steps the wrong direction and went shoulder deep and filled my waders.  I had more fun stalking these fish with my camera than I could have ever imagined. 

I never used a polarizing filter as I wanted some reflection in the water and for the water to loose a little of it's often perfect transparency.
