“Rainbow Trout Run” Duffins Creek, Whitevale, Ontario

Rainbow Trout Run

Taken last spring, during a walk along Duffins Creek. Another view of the annual trout run near Whitevale. In places, the trout are ‘stacked’ as they prepare to run up some of the shallower portions of the creek. Last year the creek was especially shallow for the time of year and there were a few deeper pools where multiple fish lined up for their run.

I like this particular shot because it has a slightly abstract look to it. Though you can see the shapes of the fish in the water, you can’t make them out very clearly. The slightly greenish tone to the water also gives it a bit of an alien look. The larger fish, near the centre captures the eye first and then you realize that he has companions on his trek.
