The Gathering

As life would have it, friends won a two night stay at a beautiful little cabin along the banks of the Delaware River system.  Good friends, good food and good times.  The fishing wasn't easy for our three day trip.  There were bugs but not as many rising fish as one would expect.  If you put in your time you would get 2-3 shots at good fish per day.  Whether or not you could catch them was a whole other ball game.  If you found "happy" fish things, were looking good, if you found inconsistent fish the odds were not let us say, in your favor.  So each fish was earned and we all learned more about the waters we fished.  Here is the first batch of pics.

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.
