Bird Competition: #39 Canada Goose (Branta Canadensis)


Nikon D90, Nikkor 24 mm AI f/2.8, ISO 200, f/8, 1/400 s

There are a few lingering Canada Geese at the shore of Töölönlahti and today I shot them with a wide angle for a few minutes. Shooting birds with a manual focus wide angle lense is not something what one does often, mutta I like today's results.

Freedom Tower Construction Site in Fog


Freedom Tower in Fog. Nikon D90, AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED, 18 mm, ISO 1600, f/3.5, 1/30 s.

In the late evening me and my wife Heidi were returning from the Brooklyn Brewery and after some obligatory shopping we saw Freedom Tower in Fog. I had only the kit lens with me and I was quite sure that it would be too dark to shoot without a tripod, but I was pleasantly surprised when I checked the pictures back in Finland.
