The Wallace River in Nova Scotia is a spawning ground for Atlantic Salmon. I was sitting by the side of the river watching some nice sized fish leaping into the air and wondered if it was possible to get a shot of one. Mostly I got the splashes after they landed, but I also got these.

Thanks Mel....these were perhaps the most difficult shots I've ever taken.

You definitely chose a tricky subject there, Ian; turned out well, all things considered, though. Can you imagine trying to capture those with a slower AF body and/or lens? :p

Thanks much Eric, yup very tricky. The quick snap focus of the 1D-X was absolutely necessary for this job. And this was with a 2xIII teleconverter, resulting in the higher ISO. All in all, they came out pretty good.

Thanks Terry, yea, there were LOTS of splash shots before I finally caught up with one. It was fun though, with big splashes all across my 180+ degrees of viewing angle, and trying to catch up with them. I think this guy was a multiple jumper, which was how I caught him (actually her, I think).

Thanks Drew. Sorry for the delay in responding, was hoping for more shots but we had a major rainfall and the salmon have successfully moved upriver to their spawning grounds.
