Three months ago I relocated from Seattle, Washington to my hometown St. Louis, Missouri. After 10 years in Seattle, it was time for a change of scenery and more sunshine The Mississippi River is not exactly a replacement for the Pacific Ocean, however I now have four different seasons and more sunshine to shoot in. Aside from the sunny weather and blue skies, it is nice to be around my family during the holidays.
Fall is my favorite season, especially along the numerous trout rivers we have in Missouri. Earlier this week I took two days off and to photograph and trout fish in the Headwaters of the Current River located in Montauk State Park.
Monday I fished and quickly caught my limit of 4 rainbow trout, about a pound each. The four fish became dinner Monday evening along with a delicious fresh watercress salad.
Tuesday morning, just after sunrise, I spotted the three images below. I setup the panorama rig and shot the 35MP – 55MP stitches with a Nikon D7000 and 35mm lens.
