"lock and dam 14"


Chicagoland, US
          

I went to lock and dam 14 for the first time last Tuesday. It was amazing, the biggest problem I had was the eagles where to close. I was shooting with a D7100, a Nikon 80-400, and a1.4 telecoverter. I had a hard time keeping everything in frame, a lot of clipped off wing shots. I ended up taking the teleconverter off. This is my favorite shot of the day

At 400mm
f 5.6

I'm going back next Thursday on my day off. I would have gone soon but it's a 150 mile drive for me. But after seeing so many great shots I had to go!

Good to hear you had a good time Gary, the shot you posted is a classic pose for sure. I was out last Wed. I am also thinking about making a trip up on Thurs or Fri depending on the weather. The lower temps looks good for Thurs and right now they are calling for mostly sunny skies. I have about the same drive you do coming from just south of Peoria. Maybe we will see you there.

Nice capture! I guess that's a good problem to have, having to remove the TC : )

Nice shot, Gary. It was pleasure meeting you Thursday morning. I hope you had some more success then. It is too bad you couldn't stick around to meet David and Scott. See some pictures from the afternoon:
