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.


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.



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




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

Meanwhile at Cheney Lake…

Some recent pics, enjoy!

Always a branch in the way…

Don’t worry, I’m not going to take your trash.

Not sure what type of duck it is on the lower right. It could be a Red-breasted Merganser or a Goosander.

Caption this one. The duck was climbing a big mound of snow.

There is a proper place for art, and tables aren’t on the list.
