Is it real? Nature seems to think the time is right. A handful of 80 degree days has sent Eastern North Carolina into a frenzy of blooms. From daffodils to Japanese Quince to Bradford Pear Blooms, the annual infusion of color is underway.
I used a 20 year old Nikon 70-210mm f/4-5.6 D lens on all of these shots. The “D” lenses have no vibration reduction built into them but the auto focus is as fast as any lens Nikon makes today and obviously, it is very sharp. BTW, The “D” means the lens communicates distance information to the camera in matrix metering mode. More proof you do not need to spend buckets of money to pick up a good lens. Happy Shooting. See you next time.
