back to my fav spot. shooting with the 300 & 500mm
these two are from the pier with the A300 f8





these are from land and the shot was composed before the gull landed. i'd say from about 60-70 meters. hurry up and wait, but i kenw it would happen.. all full frame w/the 500mm, tripod, f8.



could not resist cropping the last one. sorry for the size but this is as small as it goes without losing details. this one is going on the wall..



this lens is continuously suprising me with what it will do..

Roy, you've outdone yourself with that last shot. Incredible how sharp it is in the right places!

Way to raise the bar

thanks all,
kjell, you are correct. last shot is worth every $ i spent. i waited on this for about 20 minutes. i'd focused on the pier and waited for it to happen. i knew it would but never expected this.. long tele's are a blast. patience helps.

Nice job Roy, you really caught that last one at the perfect moment. The similarities between hunting and photography, at least taking photographs of anything alive, are amazing. Studying the subject, stalking it, waiting for the shot. The nice thing about photography is there is no bag limit and a trophy mount fits nicely into an 8x10 space. :-)
