Nature generously provided a friendly, short-lived snow for us to enjoy here in the mid-Atlantic area. Just in time for a season bit of Nikon Wednesday-ing. Here, a tripod was called for, as it was a 2.5 second exposure by candle-light. I'm sure some of you encountered some snow, too - share some photos!



D810 at ISO 200 and 2.5 seconds with a Sigma 35/1.4 ART at f/2.2 perched on a tripod.

From the peak on Hong Kong Island, overlooking the Victoria Harbour and the Kowloon Peninsula.


Nikon D850 with 18-35mm AF-S lens @ 18mm, f11, 1/160 sec and base ISO 64.

I was there last week around noon time such that lighting wasn't the best, but being in December with a lower angle from the sun helped a bit.


When I was growing up in Hong Kong 4, 5 decades ago, the buildings were not nearly as tall such that we had a better view of the harbor. Today, much of that is blocked by this "concrete jungle" unless one shoots from even higher up from an aircraft or drone.

Victoria Harbour at night.


Nikon D850 with 24-70mm/f2.8 AF-S VR lens at 48mm, f8, 1 second, and ISO 800 on a tripod. Of course I could have used ISO 64 with a longer time exposure such as 7, 8 seconds, but once again, the motion of the boats in the harbor could be an issue, or that could be a desirable effect. As the way it is now, some of the ships are blurred.
