New Lens!

I'm back in Sitka, and here for the last time this season.  I broke my 70-300 mm Nikon lens last week and then last saturday while in Juneau, I figured I'd get another one.  Instead, I bought a 150-600 mm Tamron lens, which is eye popping and great.  I like it a lot.  It cost me a pretty penny, though, about $1150, so that was a bit more than a replacement for what I had, but the zoom is superb, the vibration reduction is awesome, and the focus is easy and fun.  Its heavy and big though.  

I took this shot of the eagle handheld in cloudy conditions where it was looking like rain.

I don't know where you are now but I am back in 2009 in Panama, reading about your adventures back when. I discovered your site and went back to the beginning, reading through your posts and enjoying immensely and vicariously as I catch up week by week.
Thanks for the great writing, beautiful pictures and inspiration to keep moving!

Go in the boat you have...
