In Topic: Any news on the restrictions for 3 Sisters Springs?

that's great news that they haven't banned flash photography but it sounds like the manatee police will have more things to yell at us about now :rolleyes:

 

just curious where house spring was, tried looking it up on google but couldn't find anything in crystal river.  I'll be going up in a few weeks and would like to check it out if three sisters is closed

I was just wondering this as well, if you find out anything would you mind posting it here? Thanks!


In Topic: Purchase decision: two S&S YS-110a's or one YS-D1?

go with the two SS 110a's.  I use them with a Nikon D7000/Ike setup in full manual and don't miss TTL at all.  Once you shoot manual I found that you get more consistent photos than relying on the camera to do flash exposure.

I think that closing off the sides of the springs will do exactly what you said, create a more concentrated area of tourists.  I was at 3 Sisters yesterday and there were two large tour groups of snorkelers surrounding and crowding the manatees.  Plus a tour group of kayakers (6 or 7 of them) were also surrounding the manatees in the center of the spring.  had to wait until the tour groups got rounded up before I could take photos again.  Does anyone know how roped off the outer parts of the spring will be?  Those offer some of the best manatee photos.

I have submitted my comments, I think that eliminating the use of strobes is taking it a little far.  I've never seen the manatees be bothered by strobes anytime that I have worked with them.  Glad I'm going this weekend before the new laws take effect
