500px / Waiting for Winter In March

500px / Waiting for Winter In March . I am really waiting for spring.  I took this image with a Nikon D700 and a Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5 AF-D . It was really bright and clear , so shooting at f22 hand-held was easy. The image was taken at Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in NJ. Its been a place I have been meaning to explore. It’s a tick paradise so going with some snow,still on the ground, allowed me to explore a little with out bug spray.

  • Focal Length 18mm
  • Shutter Speed 1/100 secs
  • Aperture f22
  • ISO 250

This was one of those zen moments. I was not really aiming any shot in particular. Lets face it some of our photos are best that way. I long for more green in my photography. Its best to work with what you have in front of you though. That is what I did this day.

I was not aiming for the Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5 AF-D to become one of my favorite landscape lenses. It is really growing me. I have a nice kit now, its a little different from most peoples. I also have the Nikon 35-70 2.8 D then a Tamron 70 to 200 2.8. I could work with just these three lenses alone and be happy.
