My First Official D700 Shot
Well, I'm gonna make a little change from the Jackson Hole series and post a couple shots I took with my new - new to me - D700. I'm still waiting to purchase some lenses for it, but I do have a 50mm 1.4 that I bought a while back and used with my D300s which works with a full-framer. So here it is.
Mesquite Trees in Black and White
So a couple of weekends ago, I was out driving around trying to find things to shoot and I didn't have too much luck. I went down to the Snake Farm near New Braunfels for something to do. For some reason I always wanted to go there. Now I have and won't need to go there again. Pretty touristy and not really worth it. Might be fun for the kids though. Anyway, while I was driving, I noticed this area where there were nothing but mesquite trees in a grassy field on a slope. If you get the right angle there was nothing on the horizon but sky. I thought that might be a cool place to get some black and whites. This spot is located on the southbound side of I-35 south of exit 195 if I remember correctly. I have linked up the location below the shot if you are interested in going out there to shoot them yourself sometime.
