Last week I traveled down to Salmon Idaho to visit with some friends and snapped some pics of Richie Outfitters Getting there stock all ready for the 2015 Spring Hunting Season.
So naturally this week, we headed down to the opposite side of Idaho to help Richie Outfitters get there Stock loaded up and Saddled Up and on there way out to Moose Creek, along the Selway River. The first night we camped over night, sleeping out under the stars; while the Stocked roamed free eating up grass and enjoying some freedom. That next morning I snapped some pics and said good bye to the Pack string as they started their 10 hour journey up the Selway River.
Here are some pics. Shot on a Pentax 645z and 35mm f3.5 lens with a Pentax 645 FA 80-160mm f4 lens as well.
The Pentax 645 A 35mm 3.5 lens is manual focus, thus a bit harder to hit your mark when trying to capture a moment, but I find if I have Live View on then I can use focus peaking to hit my mark and it really makes life a lot easier when trying to manual focus.
