Found this boy floating just under the surface at Scott’s Cove. Well he did poke his head through the surface when I snapped. While he looks small he’s actually at least a foot and a half. He was out in the middle of the reservoir and I used all the zoom I had 300mm without a tripod. I’m going to spend some time down in this area trying to capture a bit more nature.

I’m also going to have to set up and watch some fisherman and see if I can capture that moment of action. Now that can take patience and I’m hope I’m capable of that. It’s not one of my best traits. Like the shot below. I saw the guy drop off his boat and I didn’t even wait for him to come back and paddle out.

I do hate taking my car down there because paved parking does not exist there. It’s the land of pickemup trucks and large SUV’s. But I will power through that restriction and still venture there.

I like going here in the mornings. It smells so fresh. And that quiet is very calming. The shutter seems so much louder here.

Well, enough for this post. I got to get shooting again and the heat is building already. Here’s to another great day. Because my Monday was a great starter day with family.
