Warm colors of rocks beneath the icy water surface

Warm colors of rocks beneath the icy water surface


It’s cold

For some reason, I really like to photograph ice formations. You can get abstractions, or interesting flows and curves. I’m lucky to have a creek in my back yard, so when the temperatures drop, it’s a good place photograph. Unfortunately, thanks to the periodic heavy rains and creek flooding, I also have to work around the crap (like cinderblocks and bricks and wood debris) that washes down into my portion of the creek.

Or should I say “crick?”


Water sports

We had some jet ski racing on the river here this weekend. I pulled out my ancient 300mm f/4.5 Nikkor (an IC lens converted back in the 1980’s to AI) and popped it on my D700 to see what I could get.

Thank you, Nikon, for keeping the same lens mount through five decades.
