p.1 #1 · Grebe courting & Mountains (11)


I was yesterday finally testing out my new Nikkor 300 f4 with 1.4 TC in the real world.
After too many common ducks I spotted two grebe but they where too far away or behind reed.
Although I knew they would be almost out of reach I changed my position to have a clear shot and was lucky to witness their courting.
These are heavy crops but I think they will look great as A4 prints in my badly light hallway.
Hope al makes sense. I had to google lots of new words.
Thank for looking.
Chris

1) Do you Like me?






2)






3)






4) Hold on I have to pick up something






5)






6)






7)






8) Wanna build a nest together?






9) This is from three weeks ago. My Swiss sister took me on a snow shoe trip in the swiss mountains.






10) Sometimes I fell behind






11) The way down. It really felt like walking on top of the world.
Although they are landscapes I like to share them with you. Lots of nature in it.

Nice landscapes and certainly a fun and healthy way to spend the day. The grebes are wonderful and such interesting head feathers.

Chris- Terrific scenics. Terrific grebe courting shots.
A few pond weeds is a lot easier than paying for a big old diamond ring .
The 1.4 and the crops make the images a bit soft- but IMO it works very well here. Beautiful images of a couple of strange-looking birds.
Since moving to Holland, you probably don't get to climb very many local snow-covered mountains .

Even though a couple of the images are soft, the Grebe sequence is a joy to see. Such interesting behavior you got to witness. Congrats!

I love the first mountain landscape image. The lone figure backed by the immense landscape is powerful. Great shot!
