p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Getting re-aquainted with an old friend (4)


Either the weather has been lousy when I can get out or I have been too busy to get out and shoot since Thanksgiving. I was determined to get out over the Christmas break so when we had a couple of hours of sun I headed to a spot close by to see if I could find SOMETHING to photograph. I was also anxious to work with my 400mm 5.6 non IS that had been on loan for a while. It was just like getting back together with an old friend. I picked it up and from frame one we were working fine together. Damn that thing focuses fast!! Another great perk to using that over a super tele is that it doesn't attract anywhere near as much attention, I was able to shoot in peace without the usual "hey that's one heck of a camera" comments

So here you go, nothing fancy mind you, just some shots from a fun filled 2 hours.

If Nikon made a 400 f/5.6 I'd have one.
Maybe a new friend one day.

Super cool poses on the Gulls, and the Mergie launch is a beauty and my favorite.

Looks like a beautiful day buddy, hoping it continues for my boys in the PNW.

Everyone who has this lens seems to love it, and I guess this is why. #3 is fun; looks like antigravity.

Nice quacker take off Tim. Your gulls are wonderful and nice to get reacquainted with an old friend....fun to shoot with 800/2. It is light as a feather and I agree it is really fast.
Hope the weather improves or the ducks may just be in your front yard.

Fantastic shootin' Tim. I feel the dreary pain.

I made an attempt to drive 2 hours to have a chance to just see snowy owls. Had a great time in the rain watching the sleepy visitors by myself for over 2 hours and just appreciated being in their presence until a guy with a longer lens than I dream of and his backpack helper felt they could make 5 of them go into flight. Grrrr. I was so bummed and really felt frustrated to know this is how some people do it. Well anyway I am over it and did get a nice couple shots but I don't feel comfortable making a post. It's just too against my beliefs.

Luv the runner #1 and the last is quite angelic.
Take care and hope we have a couple good days coming soon

Your friend didn't fail you! The bird's position for #2 is cool.
