While I was in the Houston Area last week, I took a trip to the coast. I had taken the trip in order to capture some photos for a project I'm working on. I got so caught up in this project that the opportunity to photograph other subject evaded me totally. Luckily, I packed an additional lens, the Tamron 16-300mm Lens, that allowed me to capture some of the unexpected subjects.
I kind of just threw this lens in the bag thinking I might need a little extra reach beyond the 70mm that the 24-70 would offer me. I really expected to shoot only wide angle scenes the entire time. That was until I stumbled upon a ton of these White Ibis' wading along the bay.
I was glad to have done a few things when I came across these. I was glad I had packed that Tamron 16-300mm Lens and I was glad I brought my Sirui T-2205X Tripod. Both of those things came in very handy here. I was wishing I had my 150-600mm Lens once I saw this guy had caught a crab...but I worked with what I had.
