Time to spawn

Welcome to the piscatorial perspective (fish eye). My photo and all things digital blog.  I thought a first post would appropriately celebrate this year's sockeye run in Washington State, and more locally, through the Ballard locks.

This year's run is a good one.  WA state estimated 123,600 would be going through the locks between June and July.  By July 14, ~117,000 have come through.  

These photos were take in the Ballard locks viewing area using a Lensbaby (above and below) with the f2.8 aperture ring and a Nikkor 18-200mm zoom on 18mm (left).

Herons and seal pups enjoy the fish too!
