Putcher Frame, Awre

Putcher Frame, originally uploaded by Ben909.

Putcher fishing is a type of fishing (usually of salmon) which employs a large number of putcher baskets, set in a fixed wooden frame, against the tide in a river estuary, notably on the River Severn, in England and South East Wales.
This was a bit of a rush job as the tide was coming in incredibly fast, but I’m quite happy with it. Only a few minutes earlier we were stood at the far end of the frame. This is a 70 second shot, which is a long time when your tripod is getting deeper and deeper in the water!
