We have been anchored in Claydon Bay for the last few days along with our new friends aboard M/V Dearleap. I will be doing a post on their beautiful wooden 1929 Hoffer Beeching 85 footer shortly but here is a quick picture with Iron Lady in the background.
We have been prawning and trying for salmon – the latter without much success – hopefully it is because the season hasn’t really started and not because of our technique. At any rate, a nice batch of prawns for dinner tonight.
There have been several eagles fishing around the cove in the evening so I dragged out my Nikon D7100 with my 18-200 lenses and set the camera to 7 frames per second and headed out in Beer Can (our skiff)for a photo op.
After racking up several hundred photos and narrowing the lot down, the following are the best of what I got.
Before heading up here, I had an order in for a Tamron 150 – 600 lens. For reasons unknown the release date was originally scheduled for January for Nikon bodies. At last check, it is still not available.
I cropped several of the photos to blow the picture of the eagle up but that reduces resolution – really could have used that Tamron lens.
