There’s an old saying.
Some days you eat the bear; some days the bear eats YOU.
We did a rather long roadtrip last weekend, very close to 500 kilometers round trip and in all brutal honestly, I at least I, stunk the place out. I have no idea why exactly, but I bolted on my Canon 100-400 zoom and left it on the entire day. That’s perfectly alright for a handful of shots but the whole damned day? We were out for about 13 hours and I do believe that I got 3-4 photos that were moderately acceptable. One of them is included here. Follow the link.
It’s inevitable that if you do enough roadtrips you’re eventually going to run out of local locations that you haven’t shot to death or you’re just going to stumble into a day that doesn’t offer up anything that’s really worth shooting. This past Sunday was a rock solid #2. Just Blah, as a matter of fact it went from blah, to blah-blah-blah. Not too sure how my buddy made out but I suspect it wasn’t an awful lot better.
We plan on getting out once or twice more before the season falls flat on it’s face. Here’s hoping for better luck next time.
