Taking a Break From Fishing by Rod Johnson

Taking a Break From Fishing

The two people photographed, were wild swimming in the river, at Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, England. I was at the river bank when they arrived, they waded in and set off, swimming upstream. I was there taking photos of damselflies and trying to shoot a large dragonfly, which would not settle long enough for me to focus on it. After about 30 minutes the couple returned and I had a chat with them. They said their swim was very refreshing, but it was hard going, while swimming against the strong current. It was a very hot day and I wished I could also have gone for a swim.
