Edward, your wildlife shots are just outstanding!  You must be having a lot of fun traveling about the world, observing wildlife in settings and places many of us only dream of.  Things that are often not portrayed directly in the photograph are the environmental condition of temperature, wind speed, humidity, smells, or just how much effort was applied to get to the location and in position for the shot.  It's nice to hear some of your travel experiences that provide some appreciation of the effort.   I always look forward to viewing your images.

Thanks Sharpshot, nice Eagle Images as well.

I've found BIF about as difficult a subject as there is, get this right and everything else comes easy I think.

I'm fortunate to have the time & ability to Travel as much as I do, but it's a Big World, lot's to see yet.

Thanks for looking and thanks for your kind comment.  #1 is get up early and load the camera in a waterproof housing making sure the controls are set, there’s a good seal and everything is about the same temperature to prevent fogging.  This was shot near Nixon’s Western White House south of San Clemente, California which for me means waking up at 4am, on the road by 5, parking before 6 am and a mile and a half hike before swimming out before sunrise.  I swim out on the north side of the break and look for views of the surf with the sun rising behind:

then move south through the line-up and move in towards shore to try to get the surfers riding waves towards the camera.  Water spots on the acrylic in front of the lens ruin many photos and you need to constantly work on keeping water completely off the front glass or in a thin unbroken film of water in front of the lens.  Sitting too far out results in missed shots or a poor angle to capture the action but too far in creates an unmanageable amount of water spots in front of the lens.  The surfer is Patrick Gudauskas from San Clemente, California currently ranked #28 on the Association of Surfing Professionals’ World Championship Tour shot @ 7:48 am – 1/2000 f/7.1 ISO 400, 24mm f/1.4L II lens.

Very cool!   Are on a surf board while shooting?   

Love the details and info you presented, I'm sure others will as well....thanks for taking the time to share.  Really good stuff.

No, just swimming with swim fins.  Wearing a wetsuit adds buoyancy which will help you float a little higher but also makes it a little harder to dive under oncoming waves and surfers.  There are a lot of photographers shooting telephoto off the back of Jet skis and boats in situations where that is practical.

I'm a sinker not a swimmer, so I would be on the jet ski.

Lovely! My, you worked hard for these :) see, I am a lazy tog...


Some of us are going through withdraw from not seeing Gary Samples eagle photos lately, so I thought I'd post some images taken this spring.  The interaction between the herons and the eagles was really fun to watch, but I'm sure the herons did not enjoy the eagles attempts to steal their fish.  Sometimes the heron would put the fish underwater to protect it, but sometimes they just dropped it.  The eagles would rather steal than catch their own.

Gary, miss seeing your shots.
wonderful shots looks like you have all your setting just right !!   
Yup Gary, you have competition ;) Excellent pictures sharp shot! Living up to your name I see :)

Gary, some pictures are requested :)

Very nice shot. I like the contrast of the light with the dark water and dark sky. Well done Lemmy.
