    Such a nice looking fish! How do you find taking all those photos with your SLR Dave? I'm nervous to spend the money on one when my hands are always wet while fishing so I've stuck to my Panasonic TS2 for now.

    You just have to trust your strap. Check it everytime you put the camera down. We also carry a small facecloth along to clean our hands quickly before taking a shot. A small bit of water on the camera isn't a problem(so far). We also use an Olympus stylus 1030. It takes good shots as well but the conditions have to be right. It is pretty much impervious to damage. We're now pricing out underwater housings for the slr for diving. So far they cost more than the camera did.

    Can't beat perked coffee. How many shots did it take to get that one. I'll bet you had a very nice boat ride to get to that spot.;)

    I didn't know you got up that early, but you made it worthwhile. Nice photo.

    It was a photo I ran into in my album. From last year, however, I think it is a sunset. No early bird here Paul!

    This is a shot from Saturday morning from Tunkwa Lake in BC. I can thank my dog for waking me up at 5:30am to pee for this photo...
