JUMP AROUND

Spawning_Vimba_23_05_2016

Throughout the month of May, vimbas are in the mood for love. They spawn and they jump and they jump fast. Capturing a single decent photograph can take hours and it usually works like this: I pick my spot, I sit on the rock, I set up my camera for action (crazy fast shutter speed and manual focus), I frame the predicted area and I put my finger on the shutter. Then I wait. I wait a lot and while I wait, fish keep jumping outside my frame. It became a rule that moving the camera for a second will result in a perfect fish making a perfect jump, right in that perfect spot. So, where is the fun part beside sitting on a rock, sweating and staring at the same spot through the viewfinder? It is that one split second when one of the vimbas decides to leap into the frame and I manage to react and capture the jump.
