UPY 2016 British Waters Compact - Highly Commended
'Pike on the move' - Trevor Rees

This pike (Esox lucius) was photographed in a flooded freshwater quarry on a busy Saturday morning at a site heavily used for for diver training. I found an area that had reasonable visibility and had having a number of large pike lurking. I did not have long to get the image before the water clarity was quickly ruined by other divers finning by and stirring up the silt which then scared the pike away. I decided to add a feeling of movement in the image by using a zoom blur filter effect with Photoshop, which has also helped to mask a some of the particulate matter in the background.
