Cool Airstreaming and big bucks

OK, so maybe the title was a little misleading , but this is just the reason I Airstream. This image was taken last night at the Washita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

So, you're enjoying your new Nikon. Great pic. My DW has been talking about the new one with a little drooling. I told her that when I learn to use the Nikon she now has, 2nd generation to yours, she can give me hers and look at the new one - by then it won't be new. Has yours been easy to work with, or does it take another degree?

This image (and the majority of the ones on my website) were taken with a D50. The D50 is (was) a low end digital SLR. I love it and will be keeping it as a backup body. For me the advantages of the D300, which I am getting tomorrow, are in the faster frames per second, better focusing, and better performance at higher ISOs. In my opinion, the entire line of bodies is outstanding and the main limitation is the person using the camera, which in my case is a big limitation some days (I won't even start to tell you about yesterdays disaster ).

on edit: the D50 is super easy to work with the more automated you go. Frankly, most folks are going to be hard pressed shooting manual to do better than the programs. Shooting manual is a bit clunky but I figured it out and do fine even shooting wildlife.

Taking refuge

Some more images taken at my temporary home. Full timing at my age is odd, but I sorta like it.

Very nice shots on your website Rodney! I hope I can be as good some day. I'm still learning my way around my D200, but I agree these Nikon DSLRs are fabulous.

Of course, up here in Canada, instead of "bucks" we have "loonies"



and moosies...

and beavers...

I plan to audit several photography classes to see if I can learn to go manual. I'm interested in B&W shots, but after looking at yours I'm not sure. We have one of the less expensive telephoto lenses, but it just doesn't get as close as I had hoped. I don't want to spend the really big bucks to get what I want, so I just enjoy what I have.

Thanks Sean, I'm glad you enjoyed that one .


Superb images Garfield! What glass do you have on that 200?

Stream, just dive in is my advice. You will find plenty to shoot with any lens. Why not grab a camera and come up to the refuge for a day of shooting. I would love to show you some of the tricks to shooting manual.

I'd even like to BUY that one and frame it in my office if that is an option.

I think it is. I would have to check on what sizes it would print to and find a new local printer. Let me know how large you are thinking.

The two on my office wall are 24x36 but anything up to that size would work.

I'm not really in to eagles much, am I?

This is a picture from sitting at my desk and looking left.

You know, I just may take you up on that offer - which is mighty nice of you. When does Lawton thaw out in the Spring? I'm going to be on a 3 week caravan to Big Bend from the middle of April. If I can make it, it would be closer to the third week of March. That would get me set for Big Bend & California this Summer.

March 15 (ish)-23rd I plan to be at Big Bend, April and May look good as well. You could come earlier as well. Winter shooting can be a blast and the elk will still have their racks. Early spring the buffs and elk and deer will all be calving so thats good too. So pretty much, I'm game

Great photos. I have been looking into digiscoping with my D70 body. You just need to buy the digiscope and an attachment. So often the animals I want to photograph are too far off to get a good picture, at least with my lenses.

What is the weather like in Oklahoma this time of year? I am planning to head toward Texas in the next couple of weeks.
