Default A walk in the graveyard.

Harj asked me to post a couple of shots so here we go. Wasn't a good day to go out, dull and damp but we don't always get a choice. Tried them in [email protected] to get a bit of a mood and to offset the weather.

D600. Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom

It's actually a good time to shoot, before the weeds and blackberries fill in again.

Hey Ken

Those look just fab.. so looks like your getting used to using the wee beastie!

Think B&W really works well with all of the pics, theres a couple of crackers in the mix there. So range those in cam Black&whites? How do u find the cam compared to the old only esp not having the 4*3 ratio/size?

Any chance of more sir ???

Cheers

Harj

Got to admit, I'm missing the old 70-300, 4/3 lens. That coupled with the ISO range and speed on the D600 would be amazing.

Hi Ken,
As good as the 70-300mm Oly lens is, especially it's macro capabilities, the Nikkor 70-300mmVR is pretty darned good as well.

Good series of B&W photos. But I've a question, where are these abandoned boats? Here, on the Cape, I can't think of a place that has as many in one place as you have.

Sorry Zig, I missed your post. To comment on the 70-300's the big difference is the reach of the oly at 600mm. I loved that feature and like I said, that coupled with the light gathering and viewfinder on the d600 would be great.

As of now I'm using 2 lenses, The 18-35 Nikor, great for real estate, especially using the high ISO instead of a bank of flash. And my walk about is the 28-300 Nikor Big hunk of glass but it gets results that work just fine for "me"

These boats were on the Reservation at La Conner for the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community. The fishing and crabbing has tapered off into money making casinos.

There's another old, older graveyard for old pulling boats. I can't find any photos on line but several years ago I walked it. These boats were about 20footer with one of the sides cut down to deck level to make it easier to pull the nets loaded with tons of salmon. They had precarious wooden spy towers built on the stern. I'm due for a trip back to the San Juan Islands...
