Is there still ice on the lake, Conrad? We live at the same latitude, but over here nothing of winter is left. The influence of the sea, they say.
Yes, Norrel, unfortunately that is ice, and the photo was only taken yesterday. In fact it is snowing at the moment, and I'm about to go out and capture some more images of this insanity in a few minutes.
I have noticed that your clogs vs crocs images show green grass. Stop tormenting the colonials!
It's even worse, Conrad. I had to mow my lawn last saturday :>)
Only a clog wearer would be so nasty...
Is this with the 55-200, Conrad? That seems a good, clear lens.
Hi there whoelius...this is a Nikon 70 - 300 VR that I've been very pleased with. That, and an 18-70 are all I use and seldom feel the need for anything else.
Seems you struck jackpot with that 70-300 then. My 55-200 is terrible :(.
Maybe you'll be able to capture Saturn with it tonight if the sky is clear :).
I'd heard great things about the 55-200, but it wasn't quite what I wanted, and in any event was very difficult to get when I was in the market two years ago. Love your D300! Lust could be involved too.
Cloudy here in Calgary at the moment, with snow forecast for later in the evening, so I don't think I'll see Saturn tonight! (Unless one drives by, of course.)
Hi Conrad, this shot shows pure pleasure of having excellent lens. Speaking about lenses...I had disaster experience in Petra, Jordan. One of my the most useful lens 17-85 mm refuse to cooperate with me...so I have to use super wide angle and 70-200mm L. In addition to disappointment I beg some other photographers for use their lenses (from time to time :(( I had excellent co-operation from them. Now I hope that Jordan odyssey came out with good results. Shots from Israel come out beautifully. Today my camera and lens is at Canon shop in Ontario for repairs. I need them soon because Alaska awaits me in the near future! We have to talk about safari in May...could please call me at 238 3985....I think that we are close neighboroughs. Thanks. Regards, Rafal
Hi there Rafal....I just found this note c/w your phone number - my apologies on not following up before. Perhaps in the next while we can connect over a coffee and talk photography?
Unfortunately I have some issues that won't let me get out on any safaris for a while, but they will pass.
Hi Conrad, I just noticed your comments....don't worry, we are all very busy. When you ready Jan and I could meet. Cheers, Rafal
