    Few pics from yesterday. the river was full of Barbus but we didn’t have the right equipment to collect any, unfortunately.

    The Susqueda reservoir is one of several on the River Ter and the dam which forms it provides electricity for much of the region. Unfortunately this means that the middle section of the river, despite being set in a beautiful gorge and appearing an ideal environment for fishes, is virtually dead. We had a look a few kilometres below the dam but found only only the non-native species Micropterus salmoides and Lepomis sp. A real shame as the setting was a picture.

    They are indeed – just using the kit lens though, still no idea about the others! Got a long drive Thursday night for which I’ll be a passenger so planning to swot up then.

    Beautiful country Matt! Love the stonework!

    Another little bit you might consider is a circular polarizer, really brightens up the sky when the sun’s out! Did you but more lenses?

    There are different polarizing filters. The circular type rotate and adjust to the necessary position in relation to the sunlight. Much more effective, and more expensive, than the stationary types.

    Oooh fancy, will check those out. Thanks Jim!

    I did buy more lenses, this one and this one. Got a holiday coming up so need to learn a bit how to use them beforehand!

    You need to get yourself a tame one of these to catch Barbus…

    Very nice Matt! Now you need the sb600. Which kit lens do you have? 18-55? I love mine for carry around general use.

    Yes 18/55 kit lens Jim, and I already have the SB600 plus a decent tripod so I’m basically all set!

    Pete, it’s the Río Ter basin so should be B. meridionalis yep.
