    A Family Day Out

    This is a sort-of fun shot for me.

    In this thread, Bernard (Benjy) said (in post #15) how it was likely he knew the person sitting in the boat, as he works at the angling club concerned.

    Well, especially for Bernard, here is one that I grabbed during my weekend on the shores of Loch Lomond. Maybe you know them, Bernard.

    Usually the men are alone, or in pairs, on these boats. It always strikes me as one of those activities in which the men are getting out of the house for the day. I don't think I've ever seen the family on a day out like this. Not sure how interested in fishing the lady was.

    But when the dog popped up, that just made the image.

    I agree that it's the dog that makes the image. What's the dog's name? The only thing that would make the image better perhaps would be if Mrs. Pryce was talking on a cell phone. It might even be worth setting up an image like that.

    It's imperative to view Donald's very nice image at the large size, as the downsized image shown automatically in the thread displays considerable moire.

    I'd be very happy if you wanted to save a copy of this (click to get the large version and then right click to save it) and give it to Mr & Mrs Pryce, if they have a computer, with my compliments. You can tell them that this was the very handsome guy standing with the camera at the cottage at Ross Prioriy.

    Love the shot - I hope the dog is boat trained! Talking of Salmon fishing my worst half left today for a weeks salmon fishing on the Yokanga River on the edge of the Arctic Circle in Russia.....will I miss him?.........NO WAY....I will spend the week looking for the best price on a new lens to make up for the expense of his trip. I hope he goes away a lot
