Salmon leaping in the Tweed

I have just spent a weekend in the Borders in Scotland, photographing for a project that will chronicle a life of a farming, shooting and fishing estate over a whole year, starting with the fishing.

I am still sorting through 100's of images, but these two of salmon leaping whilst several anglers toiled away trying to catch them stand out so far!

To get them, I just had to stand there eyes glued to the viewfinder and try to react in time when a fish broke water.

Using the Leica M8 and a 90mm F.2.8 lens made it slightly easier than using a DSLR as the rangefinders 90mm frame only occupied a quarter of the screen, so I could see what was going on outside the coverage of the lens. These were two successful shots out of maybe 20 taken over two hours or so.
