Speaking of hoop-houses...we have about three times this many plants waiting for the weather to get nice enough to plant in the houses.

One from this afternoon:

Birrrken von georgsfoto auf Flickr
I love birch trees ;-) Ais-Nikkor 400/3.5 IF-ED wide open, scratched front-lens, D700, pumped up the contrast
It was very difficult to frame some shots today, because the wind was still pretty strong here.
My copy of the 400/3.5 is a low-contrast-lens, the AF-S 300/2.8 and chubby (200/2 VR) will render the same scenes in a much more punchy fashion.
But I like it so far and don't regret the purchase. The tripod-mount is a bit small for my taste, okay for monopod-use, will try to find a good "plate"/adapter for tripod-use.

Leighton, are you certain was an earthquake? Maybe it was your NMFAS and your wallet having a dispute.

No damage here. Under 5.0 are usually pretty damage free. One big jolt and 10 seconds of swaying.

Haha, reminds me of one fella I saw jumping on the seat of his Lanz Bulldog (famous 1-cylinder-tractor) up and down like a monkey on a grindstone.

Kevin, I like the b&w version of the portrait. The eyes and glasses seem to work better.

Rafael, lovely Bird of Paradise.

Jeff, the Wheeler Ridge landscape is great.

Chuong, lots of fun at the zoo.

Samy, both the boardwalk reflections and the tree lined path are terrific.

Jay, that is some interesting PP.

Ed, certainly agree that this is hopefully the last major "dump" of the winter.

Ken, I like the last b&w in your series the best.

Leighton, the Frigid Barn image is excellent! Really conveys the cold and has wonderful texture.

Georg, it almost looks like spring in your image. Lovely framing and especially like the green.

I like it Georg. I also like the fact that you left the green grass in it.

Some nice images there Leighton ..... still looking mighty cold though !!!

We have no snow but a keening wind .... the lazy sort that goes through you not round !!!

Ken love your set ....

Georg I too have an affinity to the beauty of Silver Birch trees .... and a similar tree in the USA the Aspen tree, well the bark is similar anyway .....

I was out in that wind today in Preston, Lancashire and found a commemorative statue to those who just wanted a fair days pay for a fair days toil ....

All they got was shot for their troubles !!!

So the world doesn't change much even since 1842

These are the first blood with the D800 with 28mm f2.8 Ai-s

Thanks Scott.

I couldn't believe what I was feeling when that quake hit. The Broccoli plants I was sitting next to even swayed.

Are you sure you weren't rolling some of those "Broccoli" plants when you felt an earthquake?

I apologize for the tank photo, it seemed so drab...

Leighton Here's another view of the bias ply vehicle. Farm or car it is hard to say but it has a lovely gas tank and 4(?) on what used to be a floor.

Gregg Glad you had no damage, we had a roller style earthquake about a week ago in norcal.

Edward Nice conversion with the streetlight stars.

Steve Wow, unions have a rough time on your side of the pond. Nicely done.

Tough motoring there Jay ....

Sounds like Leightons shaken tractor ... earthquakes will do that to you .... or is that smoking broccoli ??

Leighton There's not much left for a proper ID. Sorry about your weather but you are making nice images with all that ice. Wow on the bad hair day tones.

Georg The birches are really lovely at the top with the bare foreground branches over the blurred background

It is raining here in sunny Florida.
