Sorry been so busy lately and have not been around much! I did get out various evenings after work with the D2x and my 200-400VR to take some shots at the local beach. I got back into bringing the 200-400VR lately instead of the 500 so I don't have to lug too much stuff around with me, tripod etc. All shots hand held at various ISO's and f'stops. Hope to get back to shooting soon, camera is going in to Melville for a tuneup tomorrow.:?
