Steelhead in Grayscale
On a recent outing for steelhead I snapped a few photos of the evening fishing activities. The clouds had moved in and brought some much welcomed showers. The lower flatter light created a subdued, evenly lit, albeit darker backdrop. Just for grins I did a quick simple grayscale conversion in Lightroom. I never could get used to taking a color photo and making it into a black and white. But, as the overall scene already lacked color I figured that I wasn't losing much. So, here goes.

Epilogue: Just before hooking up Dan was ready to call it a day. At Dax's urging he continued fishing his way into the bucket and was aptly rewarded. Moral? Hang in there and fish the sweet spots!
