Sometimes you have to look away from the action to see something interesting. Did you notice the ref in that last pic?

Image

Image

I like this shot, Roy seems to be ducking.

Image

Image

I think that one went in.

Image

Image

This one does.

During intermission, Subway launches a few free shirts.

Image

Not sure why, but Bobby Hill gets a couple of runs around the rink with his own theme music.

Image

This needs some clever text in it. Any suggestions?

Image

Image

Look at the way they hold Hughes back. No wonder they won the game.

Image

Image

I like the determined look on his face.

Image

Image

Another goal!

Image

Take that Roy!!

Image

We’ll get them next year!


Nikon D600 pics

April 2, 2013

I’ve finally upgraded my old 10.2mp camera to a 24.3mp. The old one had 3 focus points, this one has 39. It’s going to take a bit to learn all the features, but it’ll be worth it.

It’s Springtime in Alaska, but still lots of snow and not many colorful subjects yet.

A black-capped chickadee.

Image

A Steller’s Jay. I like the blue colors in the feathers, but it’s hard to get a good shot with their darker feathers. They seem to prefer the top parts of trees so it’s hard to get a level shot with them, or one without foreground branches in the way.

Image

Image

A Downy Woodpecker. I like the way their spots line up on the feathers.

Image

Image

Image

The squirrel was in the shade. The D600 does very well in low light situations. Image

100% zoom of previous pic.

Image

Northern Blue Butterflies.

Image

Image

I really like the powder blue color on this one.

Image

This one doesn’t have as much blue in it, a female?

Image

Image

As you can see, they are very small too. Hope you enjoyed them!
