This weather seems to be typical of winter so far – wet and windy days followed by very cold nights. While it’s helping top up the snow at Mt Hotham (where I’l be for a snowboarding trip in 10 days), the conditions haven’t been great for diving or fishing. And a proposed boat trip has been postponed until the weather fines up.
We only caught some small salmon and plenty of blue-throat wrasse (which couldn’t be kept) this day – our luck wasn’t helped by the persistence of Sammy the seal who hangs around this area and tried to pick off the chicken wings I was using as bait.
*In case anyone was wondering, I have Photoshop but tend not to mess around with the photos I post: partly due to my lack of skill with the program and risk of making a mess but also because I like natural-looking photos. This pic probably didn’t follow the ‘rule of thirds’ with the amount of sky but I thought it gave more perspective than just cropping the top few cms. Any other opinions?
