A superb trip working with a client in the Lake District and in Leicestershire. Accompanied by a Twisted Land Rover Defender T80 as part of the shoot, a real beast of a machine. If you haven't heard of Twisted, look them up, this wasn't your average Defender!

The weather was fantastic apart from the stormy showers on the last two days. Heading back across the reservoir in a small speedboat with a thundercloud flashing above is not fun in the slightest and luckily we made it back, very wet but glad to make it from under the storm. So it's on with the editing for this one.

Before jumping into the car yesterday, I thought I would pop my head over the wall to see if I could see any fish life within the beautiful little river that runs through our village. The stretch is not at all wide and very shallow in parts but due to the rocks it's a vocal little river and you can even hear it in our garden as it runs off into the distance. I was pretty shocked and pleasantly surprised to see a good number of brown trout actively feeding on a hatch of flies. I popped back later in the day with my camera to try and capture them taking the flies off the surface. I managed a few decent shots but these little fish are lightning quick and very picky of what they eat so timing is incredibly difficult! I think I will continue to make use of this opportunity on my doorstep to get the shot I want. It's a matter of patience! Some of the brownies were a decent size but all the larger fish kept to the shadows and only the much smaller specimens were happy to feed out in the direct sunlight. The best part of it all was even though this is in the middle of the village, the river is incredibly clean with no litter visible on the river bed, for me this is a great testament to our little village.
