    Hello Nikonistas and butternut squash aficionados. At some point last fall, we brought home a squash, cut it in half, scooped out the seeds, and threw them into the compost before baking the dish for dinner. Some of that compost made it onto the garden this spring, and we wound up with a volunteer squash. Perhaps it would have become larger, but we decided to harvest it before the rabbits got to it. Seemed a shame to cook the new squash without immortalizing it.

    Share some photos!
  2. played around a bit with an 85mm, a D3s, and a guitar player.
  3. I want to try to get used to posting again and I don’t really feel I have anything fun from this last week, so I’ve gone into my “vault” to find something. As I know I haven’t posted anything from this set of shots I should be in the clear.... These were shot back in May of 2014. I’ve been holding them back as I didn’t want to make too many people aware of the fact that I found a rookery so the birds potentially would get disturbed while nesting.... Anyhow, can’t wait to see what everyone has to share this week.
    These are shot with the Nikon D300 & my beloved Sigma Sigmonster 300-800mm f/5.6
    #1 I’ve dreamt of locating a nesting site for Great Egrets & this year I found one. It’s been under my nose the whole time, but little did I know. Anyhow, my first set of shots of a baby Great Egret NIKON D300, f/8 @ 800 mm, 1/1600, ISO 400, 0EV, Spot Metering, Aperture priority
    # 2 But my luck continued. I even found that the Snowy Egrets were nesting at the same site - so Snowy Egret Strutting his or her stuff in breeding colors (first time I ever got one in breeding colors)... NIKON D300, f/8 @ 700 mm, 1/320, ISO 400, 0EV, Center-weighted average, Aperture priority
    # 3 To crop or not to crop, that is the question. I’ve chosen not to crop. I wanted to show how well the fledgling blends into the foliage. To my joy I also located Black-crowned Night Herons in this location. The Fledglings look nothing like their parents. NIKON D300, f/8 @ 800 mm, 1/160, ISO 400, -1/3EV, Center-weighted average, Aperture priority
  4. While perusing the summer's haul of infrared experiments with the Nikon D2H it occurred to me I still hadn't tried the conventional red/blue channel mixer swap to turn the sky blue. I sorta prefer the disorienting apocalyptic red sky for some pix, but I gave it a go. These are just this week's re-edits from some recent IR pix posted in previous WedNikPix threads. I had a few new photos but they're boring.
    All with Nikon D2H, Tamron Adaptall 24mm f/2.5, and a stack of #25A red, Cokin circular neutral polarizer and Cokin Pola Red-Green Canadian comedy polarizer.
    From where the sun now stands, I will golf no more forever.
    After reading Castaneda, Sunny aspired to be a moonflower.
  5. [​IMG]Good day. I was playing around with the 3D function of photoshop CS5 and this is what I got. Two images taken with the D300 and the Nikkor 70-300mm.
  6. [​IMG]I did some intentional camera movement during the exposure.
  7. Looking up the James River in Richmond on a nice fall day, from the Nickel Bridge. Nikon d80, Tokina 12-24 @ 12mm
  8. Here are mine for the week. Watkins Glen state park near the finger lakes region in NY. Nikon D800 + Nikon 28-70mm f2.8. Enjoy!
  9. Interesting rock formations Chris, nice shots so far everyone. This is my second attempt at a portrait session and my first of kids, my parents were my first. Next door neighbors boy, Collin.
  10. We were having to move fast because he didn't care for the hat.
  11. This last one is of the sunset on the drive home from the photo session. We have beautiful sunsets here in Oklahoma.
  12. More waterfalls - this morning, Swallow Falls, after rain
  13. and a detail
  14. Happy fall !
  15. Hagia Kyriaki is a small chapel we encountered on our way to Preveli (Crete), next to Kourtaliotiko gorge. Here are some photos...Cheers!
  16. Eclipse today. Nikon D3X, Nikon 300 2.8, TC-14E II, 1/320 sec, F/5.6, ISO 1250
  17. Three of our granddaughter, Daphne, all with D800E and 85mm Nikkor f/1.4 AF-D.
  18. Second one.
  19. Wonderful images so far today.
  20. First Tee Open
  21. One More
  22. Harvest moon about 7:90 PM while jogging in park in SE USA. I understand best view of eclipse was in Pacific area.
  23. Harvest moon about 7:90 PM while jogging in park in SE USA. I understand best view of eclipse was in Pacific area.
  24. From the 2014 Fiddlers Convention last weekend.
  25. We went up to Jenny Lake to watch the eclipse over the Tetons this morning. Excellent view of the moon over Tewinot.
  26. A view of Tewinot, the Grand Teton, and Mt. Owen after the Oct 1st snow.
  27. After planning and construction that seemed to proceed at a crawl, the bike/pedestrian w\bridge over the Snake River is finally open. The bridge includes decks to pause and envoy the view and rushing water. This is a lee wave cloud that has formed frequently in the last few days. I dropped the blue, and pushed the yellow and green luminance to give an IR effect.
  28. Matt, I tossed seeds from three spaghetti squashes into the compost pile this spring. The vines threatened to take over the yard.
  29. After an interesting shoot with my 105mm VR (on DX) produced some colour aberrations, someone kindly pointed out they were kinda pretty. How true they were! This was a dew-covered spider's web with the lens suffering from Long CA and with the image's saturation then boosted. In a way these are not created colours......just emphasized!
    D5300 + 105VR + SB-800. Manual 1/200 @ ISO 100 @ f4.2. Flash ~ 1/16 power.
  30. One more shot of the geese in Otaniemi. I finally made a shot with shutter speed faster than 1/4000s, by mistake of course. ;-)
  31. Been a while since I used mt Nikon.
  32. Happy Wednesday everyone. Lovely photos as always.
    I haven't posted for a while; I've been doing a lot of kayaking before the winter returns. I don't have protective gear for the Nikon, so all my pictures were taken with the phone.
    Here's a picture of my sister's dog taken at a recent family gathering.....
  33. Autumn in Quebec: One thing I love about the fall scene in Eastern Canada was the ubiquitous juxtaposition of the spruce's conical form in green, against the vibrant yellow, orange, and reds. When we drove over the border to Vermont USA , the colors on the rolling hills were magnificent, but gone were the triangular designs.
  34. The International Bluegrass Music Association held its annual convention last week. Here's Terry Baucom.
  35. I've been working though unprocessed images an found this. A captive bird at the International Bird of Prey Centre at Newent.
  36. Another old one from me. Not the sharpest picture of a Speckled Wood, but I like the combination of colours.
    D700 with IIRC Sigma 70-300mm Apo macro zoom.
  37. Love that paint smell. Takes me to my childhood, at my mother`s home.
  38. As a counterpoint to John Harper's night photography done well, here is my night-photography fail* (or crappy self portrait, depending on how you look at things) at a "scenic viewpoint" just off of the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire. For those wondering about the mechanics, my shadow is actually from the moon which was behind me, the light streaks are of course from a passing car which drove through the scene while the shutter was open.
    *Come to think of it, this was probably deliberate, since I can think of no other reason I'd have had the camera pointed this way. That said, certainly a few other night-sky shots were ruined by cars passing through.
  39. Nikkormat FTn 55mm f/1.2
  40. So many stunning shots!
  41. [​IMG]
    Nikon D200 18-70mm. New to the forum, some wonderful photo's here today. Just wanted to share one
  42. Been busy this week. Did do one photo of the green peppers I picked from the garden. Last bunch I'm afraid. I placed them on a white cardboard on my stove top and stood on a chair above them. The light was the stove hood light.
  43. here's the right size
  44. One Osprey - aka Fish Hawk -- image.
  45. Walked the dog this afternoon by the river. This is downtown Saint Paul, MN from the river.
  46. finally, this evening my granddaughter was over for a while, looking stylish in her boots and jacket for fall.
  47. Ray House
