Foggy New Year to you...

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Backdoctor, Jan 1, 2006.

  1. last night, heavy fog all the way home from Xcutter's house.

    Today, heavy fog till 10:45am in Bear Point:


    on the way to BP, had to stop and use the ol 300 f4 with 1.4x:
    NIKON D100    ---    420mm    f/8.0    1/500s   

    Once at BP, shifted to the 400 f2.8. What a rig to lug.....:eek: 
    with the 1.4x on:
    View attachment 23275
    same shot with the 1.7x on:
    View attachment 23276

    and again, with the 1.4x on:
    NIKON D100    ---    550mm    f/4.0    1/1600s   

    back out for late afternoon sun. Steve S said he was going, but no answer, so off I go....

    The Hawk and the last one are awesome.

    That is some dense fog for sure.

    Nice shots Harris, but especially the two that Gale mentioned. So what do you think about the 400 2.8?

  4. Well, its a killer lens. Wish it were mine, but really happy Birger is letting me use it. Superb glass.
  5. Thanks Gale..:smile:
