Texture of a Downpour

and a missed opportunity via “I should go over there….no, I’ll do it tomorrow”. The water was up and the salmon were moving up river. In fact, look across the river, in the below image, and you will note a small stream flowing into the river. My attention was drawn toward the mouth of that small stream. Dozens of large salmon were staged at the mouth and attempting to push up into the stream. Their backs were protruding as they pushed, thrashed and twisted via powerful tail thrusts.

I thought that would make for some great photos. I would sit and focus on the five foot wide mouth and take great shots of the fish, rocks, water and splashes. Yes, that was a great idea I thought. But, not that day, I had to catch fish (those fish staged off the small stream are quite vulnerable and to me it would be blatantly unethical to harass them at the point they were entering their spawning habitat).

What I didn’t think about was the water level not only dropping for the main river, but also for the small stream. The next day, the water had dropped so far the salmon could not make a run into the small stream. They were no where to be seen. Opportunity lost…so I fished upriver.

Tonight, I’m back home and I can see it is currently raining hard at the coast. The water will rise by morning and those salmon will be staged off that small stream and muscle up over those rocks and I won’t be there to capture it. Maybe soon (it won’t last much longer) or maybe it waits until next year.

Downpour

A broken downspout and a deluge lead to a lot of water coming off the roof in a matter of minutes.

Photography: Empty Bench Waiting…(Leana Jimenez)

Avid photographer and co-worker, Leana Jimenez captured this shot just outside our office’s front door. The often inviting bench, on a pleasant day, was no where to be sitting today.
