… or: being prepared.
The week before last, my son got himself a new lens that has had to be tested. He bought a long telephoto lens, so we planned to go photographing birds. So, Saturday before last we went to a lake where I’ve never been before, but it proposed some good sightings according to my researches. As we were going for wildlife photography, I took only my wildlife camera with an APS-C sensor, the long telephoto lens, and my monopod with the gimbal.
None of us was there before and so we went around scouting the area for a probable return. At one point, I noticed this junction of two creeks and I liked the reflection very much. But, I definitely had the wrong lens with me for this scene. Fortunately, he has had an additional lens in his bag: a 35-70 mm. It’s taken with an APS-C camera at 70mm (~105mm on 35mm-film).
In the end, it was a quite successful stay despite we only had 3 hours time and the location is worth a return. The heron image, I showed you yesterday, was taken there. A few further images are already in my Instagram account.
