The Big Trout, Adaminaby, NSW

Photographer's Name
Chris Round

The Big Trout in the trout fishing village of Adaminaby weighs 2.5 tonnes and holds the illustrious title of the world's biggest trout. Seemingly leaping into the air to swallow a fortuitously placed star trail, the fish is given a new lease of life. This image, part of an ongoing project about the Snowy Hydro Scheme and surrounding region in NSW, explores the balance between nature and man's intervention - vast structures amongst epic landscapes, re-shaped waterways and newly created ones. Also the exploration of life in the region - skiing in winter; walking, boating and fishing in warmer months.
