Rising Rainbows





The above images were taken yesterday at Silver Creek.  Surprisingly, I was able to get pretty close to feeding fish without putting them down.  There were quite a few Baetis starting around 12:30 and the fish were on them.

On the techie side, I shot the images above at at least 1/4000th of a second.  I set aperture priority on the 80-200 lens to ƒ2.8--wide open--both for speed and to limit the depth of field for a dreamier effect.  I did not use a polarizing filter as I wanted some reflection and I wanted as much speed as possible without cranking up the iso.  My iso was set to 280.  I am hoping to try and get one more session in while the warm days are still here in conjunction with a lot of Baetis.
