Early morning visions from a small lake
« on: June 24, 2022, 22:58:47 »
Not being around here for a long while, I have finally let the Df see some nature again. This is from a lake outside Halden, Norway. The mood and lightning was shifting during the early hours of the day.

For the first and the last picture, the Nikkor AIS 105mm f/1.8 was used. The two in the middle was taken with the Nikkor AIS 35mm f/1.4.

Welcome back :)

The Df continues to deliver, as do your legacy Nikkors.

I have to strongly agree with all the above.
Thanks for taking us there

Thanks for all the nice responses.

About the legacy lenses, these ones are very good performers in my experience. I suppose modern coatings are better, but the mechanics hardly so. The lack of auto focus are fortunately of no concern for this kind of use.

@Andrew: Nice to see you again too, my friend.

I woke up a bit too early that day (in a tree-top-cabin), but going back to sleep was impossible when I saw the fog drifting across the water. Fortunately, I always keep a pair of rubber boots in the trunk of my car, and they really were handy when walking along the rather treacherous shore line. Other treacherous things were also found, as shown in the picture below. Not so visible straight on, and the high reeds gave the web a height matching my face. It was so big that I think it would almost cover my entire head if I had not seen it the moment before being caught.
