And Now for Something Completely Different

Every year my wife and I head to Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.  This year was no different except I brought my camera gear and had a blast taking pictures of some of the performers.  While this is a folk festival it is an eclectic one offering a wide variety of interpretations of what folk is.

Getting After it Summer Style

In our neck of the woods, being flexible and open minded can transform an outing or outings from good to great.  This has been true of late with several outings.  Below is the photo dump.

New Toy

So the other week I got a new toy an "old" pro Nikon 300mm F/4 Ed-IF.  It's a heavy, yet super lens that I got cheap online.  It's the only way that I can get into the pro level.  I've been shooting birds in the yard and have been learning it's particular strengths and weaknesses.  So far I've been very happy with the images.  Here are two of small Tufted Titmice.  The first one was taken in the morning with good light and the other at an hour before sunset in our heavily shaded yard.  I'm thrilled and can't wait to spend more time behind the lens.

Eric's Super 8

Last week was Spey Nation and I took a bunch of pics again.  I've just been getting around to editing them.  Here are two that I really like.

Went out for a little walkabout this afternoon and caught this storm cloud coming towards me.

New Angles

Over the weekend I got to hit one of my favorite rivers with two good fishing friends.  Fish were had under difficult conditions but it felt to good to be hunting for noses and having some fun. I'll let the pictures tell the story of the day and it was a good day.

Old Water, New Water

Many years ago when I lived in Massachusetts my buddy and I fished this gem of a small fishery every Wednesday after work.  He moved away and life took me away from this drainage.  Now years later a group of fishing friends invited me for a little fishing on this river and I had a blast learning some new water along with some old water. Here are some of the pics.
