How many turtles can sit on a log???
Apr 11, 2012

Was walking near my house when my wife spotted some turtles sitting on a log in the lake. There was no access to them from where we were so I made a point of returning later. I ended up a bit down the lake side which was good as it did not spook the turtles. Used my K-5 and Tamron Adaptall 400mm f4 with Pentax AFA 1.7x TC. The final print was created with PTGui from 20 images. This is also my first time using the gallery and I think the compression to JPG has degraded the image somewhat. At any rate, the 36" print is very nice and the answer is 23.

Something wrong with the water and no other logs nearby? Funny!

Funny you should say that as it is the only log in the lake. Makes it prime real estate.

Very good shot!

It's certainly better to see a large print on the wall!

Thanx for sharing.

So is there perchance a busy multilane highway nearby?

This is a fun and nicely done shot.
