To pablominto: Oh yes!

You would have been in your element there with your fly rod, we saw large numbers of double figure plus (bigger than10 Lb) rainbow trout. This year especially the large fish remain in the headwaters....

To emka: Hi Malgorzata.

Thatís about as high as the water gets at this end of the river and we did a fair amount of pushing and dragging of the raft for the first day or two of the trip. But it was worth he effort and was a...

To phwall: Not ear muffs

Just a floppy hat, hard to see with him sitting in the shade. That lens is not the fastest focusing but on the large version the skier is sharp enough (just) but not the boat. Perhaps the spray on...

To Vato_Law: Hi Paulo.

To Longroute: Hi Donato

No flash or mirrors, just the ND Grad filter. This filter has a dark half that was placed over the sky so the exposure could be lifted a stop (or two) without over exposing the sky. I did the same...

To Greg1949: Hi Greg.

I thought that one was old enough for most to forget so I could sneak another similar shot on ;-).

To phwall: Hi Peter

I have another shot on TE almost the same so I was a little reluctant to post this one. Luckily it was quite some time ago so most will not have seen it.
Thanks for your thoughts, Paul.

To Dyerco: Hi Phil.

The softness, I think, is from blown highlights. And no tripod in the boat ;-).

To plimrn: Hi Pat.

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I'm not 100% sure but Whakatane meens to act like a man so I'm guessing something along the lines of "I'm going to act like a man so help me".
