p.1 #1 · D800 goes to Yellowstone


Was an early adopter of the D800 and still loving the camera. IQ is incredible..
Here are some from my recent trip to Yellowstone.
First up is the Bear Attack Drill, just a quick drill in case I ran into any Roque Bears....
the rest are some of the images that I have processed, still have many more to go..

Thanks for the kind words..
Scott I used the 400 with the 1.4 tc for the wolf shot.
The pronghorns were taken with the 400 and the 2xtc all shots with the tc's were shot
wide open.
The 400 is by far my favorite supertele

My trip produced pretty terrible wildlife shots
Poor tripod and technique
300 2.8 + 2.0 + 5d mark II and shy animals = grainy, soft bad pictures.

These are just wow

thanks Magic,

vchowdhary, I ran into problems with smoke from the surrounding fires which at times robbed my images of any detail. Yes, a good tripod is a must when using any super tele..

thanks Rodolfo,
I was there for 12 days and believe me, it wasn't enough.

thanks Dan.

So far, I've managed to spend all of 1.5 days in Yosemite. With small children.

I'm absolutely sure that two weeks are not enough. We'll just have to plan future trips back there.

I like the wolf. I have always been fond of those animals especially since there was a campaign to eradicate them all at one time. Nice to see them come back. The 800 seems to perform well.

I'm sorry to say your bear attack grill will probably lead to a sad ending since those sprays have been know to aggravate the animals rather than deter them. I do a lot of back country hikes and trips here in the pacific northwest and you are much better off with one of these.

Don't want to hijack but Jorge there is no more leading proponent for a 1911 based .45 as I've custom built them for 30 years I would suggest one slight modification on your 1911 if you are to depend on it against bear attacks. Remove the front sight. That way when a bear does attack you you won't cut your lip when you stick the muzzle in your mouth and pull the trigger.
A far better solution would be something like a Remington 870, 19 inch barrel and a 9 round tube magazine alternating #1 buckshot and slugs.

Wonderful pictures BTW
