This Just In!

[Not a valid template]
Purple Sandpiper is another rock loving winter species that is most easily photographed on rock jetties where they spend nearly all of their time when away from the breeding grounds. Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS lens with the EOS-1D MIII. ISO 800. Evaluative metering +2/3 stops: 1/320 sec. at f/5.6. (DPP conversion.)

For those who thought that my warnings about jetty safety might have been a bit exagerrated, check out this link:  It was posted by Dave Blinder in the BPN “First Mid-Atlantic Get Together” thread.  The  photographer came within a hair’s breath of buying the farm and was extremely lucky to get out alive.

After reading the tale above and seeing the accompanying images I am betting that you will not be doing any jetty photography without having a photo buddy along….
