Lake Lookout
Lake Lookout by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

Hobbiton movie set, Waikato, New Zealand. I don't think it quite works as a fishing spot since it's a little too far up from the shoreline. It's trivial little touches like these that really brought the site to life.

@chaseawaythedark: A wildlife photographer I follow on dA essentially characterizes the trade as a mix of luck and infinite patience. I don't have much patience, but I did have luck. :p
