Sidney Spit lagoon critters (V1+70-300VR)
Aug 23, 2012

Hey gang,

One of the reasons why I got the V1 was so that I could use the 70-300VR with it when kayaking. This was the first real opportunity out with the pair at Sidney Spit BC, and I hoped to see an eagle, or some deer, or some herons, all of which I had seen around this lagoon in the past. So I kayaked into the lagoon on a bit of a mission. And I was happy to find all of them there (plus a bonus King Fisher). So, mission accomplished!

The 810mm reach of the lens was awesome, and the VR worked very well (even from in a wobbly kayak), as did the V1 in general. These were processed in LR4.

Btw, I know that the King Fisher shot looks slightly soft. That was a quick shot, and he didn't stick around long enough for me to take another one. But I like it anyway.

Any comments or critiques are welcome! Thanks for looking.
