Nikon Wednesday 2017: #51

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Matt Laur, Dec 27, 2017.

  1. Important: please keep your image under 1000 pixels on the longest side for in-line viewing, and please keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc). Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here: http://www.photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00W7km. This forum's moderators are allowing up to three Nikon Wednesday images per week, so share some work!

    So, it's the last Nikon Wednesday of another year, as the calendar works this time around. Hope everyone is having a peaceful holiday season, and perhaps seeing some sights (or some sites) that are inspiring a bit of photography. Our Christmas day visitor this year was a juvenile red-tailed hawk who hung around outside our kitchen window for over an hour. Maybe those meat scraps we tossed out there had something to do with it! Let's see what everyone else has been up to - share some photos!

  6. I am amazed by this. Programming through DNA and a bit of practice and a delicate maneuver like this can be pulled off in some gusty wind. I just wish the frame buffer on the D7100 was bigger so I could have shot the retreat of the parent. By the way, is this how they got the name 'swallow'?

  9. It's snowy and wickedly cold in Vermont, I hear, but I find myself not quite at home at the moment. I'm about to go under the radar, so here's a happy new year picture from Costa Rica, which is decidedly not freezing and buried in snow.

    D7100, 55-300 lens, cropped and not very well processed on my nasty little computer, but hey, it's not snowing!

  11. along the Mississippi River between New Orleans and Baton Rouge the locals of the "River Parishes" have for well over 100 years built bonfires to guide Papa Noel down the River to their houses.They are lighted on Christmas Eve just after dark, a very big family affair, people come from surrounding areas to view and to share a very south Louisiana Christmas Eve experience. Of course there is food!

    bnelson - why was it a pleasant surprise to see the ship proceed to Stockton on Sacramento River?
     
  18. As usual, late I'm afraid. I've been to visit my sister in Wales, where she actually has scenery and birds in the garden (a combination of cats and the urban setting means I've normally been stuck with pigeons and the occasional magpie at home).

    First, boxing day rains...

    (D810, 24-120 + polariser, since I got to learn what polarisers do to rainbows...)
     
  19. Since we seem to have a bird theme this week, and my slightly feeble attempts at birds in flight can wait, here's a seasonal robin (the kind we get in the UK, not the American version, obviously). D810 (still), 200-500 + TC14, through a window. Cheating, on a manky bird feeder. :)
