    Folks,

    Greetings. Last time I was in So. California I shot Bolsa Chica with my D3 + 70-200VR... I had more fun this time with my relatively new 200f2 :wink:...

    Had some fun shooting wide open or close to wide open, and auto-ISO (first time I've used this with the faster minimums 1/1000 min shutter speed... I liked it :biggrin:) 

    Elegant Tern f/2.0 1/8000 ISO200 :biggrin:
