p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · New Ride


I've been paddling an old Pungo Classic for years. Last year I bought a used Eddyline Sandpiper, but it didn't do what I wanted it to do. So I sold the sandpiper a few weeks ago and bought a Hurricane Expedition 140 Sport. I like it a lot. And I did take my gear along for a true "test" on the Maiden voyage. In order to be able to get to my gear, I made a small platform to use with the Pungo, and it works well with the Expedition too. All I have to do is clamp it down, and the Pelican case is within reach, and the cockpit is open enough to allow easy access to the 7D + 500mm.













Now to the interesting stuff. exif attached

1) 500mm landscape - I don't know if I like this shot, so looking for opinions.







2) This tree is on a little island - maybe 10-15 sq ft. I've been trying to get a decent shot of it for years, and have never been satisfied. I need to get closer so I can use a wide angle lens instead of the 500. This is posted because of the splash a spawning carp made. I've never gotten the splash before.







3) I frequently see eagles in trees, but an IF shot is uncommon.







4, 5 & 6) On the way back I spotted this GBH in my favorite spot. They always look great in the morning sun. I think it was eating carp eggs because they were spawning in the water lilies, and I never saw anything in it's mouth, but it was eating something.



















7) Just before I got back to the boat launch, Ole Blue Eyes decided to check me out. I suspect some feed these geese. Full frame.







Thanx for looking, and as always, C&C appreciated ~ Ron

Ok, now that you have your numbering and images straightened around I will comment

Congrast on the new luxury liner though you are making me nervous using spring clamps to hold your gear aboard!

#3 Yes, I like it, nice contrast of elements
#4 Alligator
You sure know how to get great low lever GBH images my friend, these have you touch, nice light and lovely colors. Great exposure and detail on the last one and cool on that eye

Take care
Karl

Big congrats on the new ride Ron, looks mighty sweet

I don't know what kind of carp you have there but here the fish and game guys planted sterile carp to eat the invasive weeds and those boys are big, easily 20+ pounds. I guess nobody told them they are sterile as they go through the mating splashing and such. When they run into the yak you know it

Nice shots from the new boat, 6 just about jumped off the screen!!! Killer shot of the killer!!!

I'm nervous along with Karl about the clamps but I will assume it works well for you. I'll keep the big gun between my legs

I suspect the new boat plays a little nicer in the water than the old one. I'll have to build a platform like that for my own boat. I don't have a solid case, but the bag I use doesn't work so well on a curved desk. A platform may help.

Nice set too.

Congrats on the new ride Ron... I sure do envy all of you guys who can access birds via the Yak.
Great set, love the low angle and nice light on the GBH. Cool BEIF shot, and I prefer #2 landscape over #1.

Good set up with the kayak Ron!
#1 doesn't do much for me but I really like #2 with the beautiful light on the tree.
All the birdy ones are fab

Slick new ride Ron. I hope it gives you years of enjoyment and you continue to explore new and exciting places. Those low down shots are really nice...a different perspective for sure than photographing from shore

An excellent set, Ron- with the last image being my favorite. Those big guys are fearless, and their beaks are about crotch high. When they charge- I head for the hills .
About the first image- I like it, but I'd like it much better with less foliage and more of that beautiful reflection.
And now for a really petty nit: regarding the island- did you mean 10-15 square feet? Or 10-15 feet square? . (If it was the former- then the laugh is on me.)

Very nice set, Ron and congrats on your new ride.
I'm with Charlie with #1. Works for me but would like to see more of the neat reflections.
