    Hello Nikonistas - a good Wednesday to everyone. Had my rig out shooting at the local county fair the other day. Two local bloggers were just dying to get up onto the displayed ladder truck so they could get panoramic shots of the sprawling fairgrounds. The truck's crew, of course, would have none of that. But one young firefighter volunteered to head up 90' of ladder with a pocket full of smart phones to get a bunch of shots on their behalf. Public servant indeed! How high did your Nikon gear get this last week? Share!
  2. Recently processed self portrait taken earlier this summer at Deadvlei, in the Namib Desert. The trees are the subjects, but I got bored and decided to get in the photo. When the sun set we shot star fields and illuminated the trees with flashlights. The star field is posted as my second shot.
  3. Star field at Deadvlei, Namibia. The small smudge in the sky to the right of the tree is the Small Magellanic Cloud, one of the Milky Way’s satellite galaxies.
  4. And sure enough, he spent 20 minutes shooting - he had cargo pants pockets full of phones.

    I've been getting into low-altitude aerial photography lately, but this guy was doing it the old fashioned way.
  5. This ones from a walk along the sea shore a couple hours ago. Tonight was a blue moon and a few paddlers were out enjoying it. Nikon D800E, 70-300 VR @ f/7.1
  6. How high - about 9000ft but still with solid ground under my feet: Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in the White Mountains. All images with D300 and 16-85.
  7. Some photos of my old cars-was cleaning out the storage area where I keep them and it seemed like a great photo op-a bit of American history.

  10. And lastly, another of my oldie but goodie Fords
  11. Not high, but low. Wild carrot, seed head.
  12. And from the woods, a bracket fungus - Polyporus (Laetiporus) sulphureus attacks the heartwood and kills the tree slowly, over years.

    These kids were spinning one another around on a old office chair. Nikon D700 with 24-120mm/f4 AF-S VR @ 28mm.
  15. Jeff, great shots!
    Was up in the middle of the night a few nights ago and with an almost full moon, decided to experiment with some basic night photography, adding a bit of fill light with flash.
  16. A day trip to Pawnee, OK. this past weekend. Went to Pawnee Bill's Ranch to get these.
  17. Black smith shop
  18. Lilly pond out side black smith shop
  19. Good Wednesday morning to all. Great shots so far today.
    My first shot is a ferris wheel in the early morning hours at Wachapreague, Va.
  20. Second shot is a beautiful sunrise looking out at the channel off the shore at Wachapreague, Va.
  21. D800E, Sigma 50mm f/1.4, ISO 2500, 1/200 @ f/5.6.
  22. The kitten was trying to catch a mouse on an iPad App.
  23. My wife and I got to spend some time in NY city 2 weeks ago. We visited the 9/11 Memorial. Very sad to see all those names carved in granite. This woman spent a long time at this spot. Nikon D3, Nikon 28-300 3.5, F/5.0, 1/100 sec, ISO 2,000
  24. After a bit of pencil sharpening I decided to spring for the Nikkor 70-200/2.8 VR II. Then I had to take a couple of shots to test, right? So here is the 100% crop of the tree I chose, taken from the distance of 175 feet hand-held. Wish I could show the actual resolution, but to do that, Photo Net would have to allow file sizes way bigger than the 300K limit. D800, ISO 1200, 200mm, f/11, 1/200. [WOW]
  25. Swallowtail Butterfly, Papilio glaucus maynardi

    "6 knots"
    "Danish trio"
    both shots with Nikon FM2, Fisheye-Nikkor 16/3.5, probably with one of the built-in-filters, expired Agfa APX 100 in Diafine

  31. Hello my friends, l o v e l y photos so far, Great work All! Three summer snapshots for this week...Take care!
  32. Happy Wednesday everyone!
    Sorry for not contributing for a few weeks; we've had the builders in, and I must confess to losing my photographic motivation a bit. I have been enjoying looking at all your contributions though.
    This week I particularly love Jeff's night shot, Bill's kitten and Georg's black and white boats.
    Here are a couple of shots of my daughter taken in a wheat field near our home. Hope you like them :)
  33. And secondly, a two shot HDR........
  34. Picked up a really nice F4 (my first) last week, and wanted to test the manual focus indicator in the viewfinder. I used a 50mm F/1.2 wide open and focused on Rachel's left eye. Pretty impressed, and probably more accurate than my organic focusing methods!

    Notice the partial heterochromia iridum in her left eye too. First time I've seen that. Cool, but a little freaky.

  35. From the top of Hehuanjian Mountain 合歡尖山, Taiwan. About 3217M. Taken with D800 Voigtlander 58mm.
  36. An easy trail to one of the 100 peaks of Taiwan - Shihmen mountain. Taken with 28mm AIS f/2.

  50. Roseate Spoonbill, shot with Nikon D300 and Sigma 70-200 f2.8 APO DG II with Sigma TC 1.4. Not sure if my focus was a little off or if the lens/TC combo is a little soft.
