Photo Of The Day: September at Duck

BloggedJust back from a week at Duck/Southern Shores on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  I was blessed with phenomenal weather despite or perhaps, in spite of the weather prognosticators who kept predicting a washout.  I think I spent more time out with the cameras this time than I ever have; out twice a day roaming the banks for hours on end.  I filled up three 16 Gb SD cards and two compact flash cards.  With weather like I had, it was hard not to snap a keeper.  This is the dawn on the beach at Duck September 15th.  Sorry for the tilted horizon. Too much Blue Moon Beer.

New Camera from Nikon

Nikon has released the D750,  supposedly the replacement for the legendary D700 which was released years ago.  I loved the D700 and while the new camera has most of the bells and whistles one would expect in a professional/consumer level camera, the non-pro body left me cold.   I passed on it then along comes B and H Photo Video in New York where I buy much of my photography gear with a terrific deal on a factory refurbished Nikon D800E.  It was too good to pass up so I traded in my faithful D700.  Nikon’s advertising for the D800E was to the effect that “you’re going to shoot everything all over again.”  I believe it.  The resolution is mind blowing.  I’m already thinking about a return to Duck to reshoot everything.

Thanks for the look in and have a great week ahead.

  1. What a striking image for us to see. There is nothing like a visit to the beach to refresh ones’ soul….Your image speaks volumes…Wowza! Am so glad you had good weather and such a profitable photo shoot!

    That new camera will be fun….Sounds like you got a nice one! I’m looking at some older used lens that have good glass. I bet on one on eBay yesterday, but lost the auction bet to someone’s else. Oh well….!

    • Dorothy, you might have a look at the used departments at B and H Photo and Adorama, both in New York. They’re on the web. Another good source for used photo gear is KEH also on the internet. All three are trusted sites that have terrific rating systems for used gear.
