Bolivar is finally cooperating with low tides in the morning. I’ve been waiting months for this so I spent Sat and Sun mornings at the coast. It was just cool enough on Sat at 46 deg. to break out the neoprene waders and winter coat for laying in the wet sand. The only problem was that I forgot to bring my ground pod on Sat. Had to improvise and go old school to prove that you don’t need a ground pod to shoot from the prone position. But it really does help. Ended up spending 3 hours laying down handholding my camera with ye old elbows buried in the sand. It wasn’t too bad until my elbows worked their way down into the sand and the hole filled up with salt water, which of course dripped all over my gear when I finally stood up.
Anyway, the birds were out and it was a great weekend. Here are a few Willet and yellow legs shots.
All taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens.
