...fyi..... i was on the other side of the lake for these shots.... far away.....the 400mm is a lot of fun.... trap focus works so well....

Love the second one! Was surprised to see the location, I live about 25 minutes away from Chautauqua Lake!

E-Scows (I think) - I haven't seen one of these in years.

These are superior boat shots, Dave. Sharp yet with feel of summer; I really enjoyed looking.
