Mersey Salmon

By cyclopse
This is a sight I thought i would never see in my life time, a salmon in the river mersey in the north west of england, this river once had the title of dirtiest river in europe. I saw several salmon jumping near the branch that was stook on the weir so sat there patiently for hours untill i got this image. Techical details are f8-1/1000/iso400
