While riding the “Lady of the Lake II” Lake Chelan in Washington, I caught this Jet Skier lose his grip as he was jumping the wake behind the ship. Even though the Nikon D3x does not have the high speed burst rate of the D3, sometimes you get lucky. It appeared that he was OK once his companion made it to his position.
Miners Rock at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Gone to See America 2006 Road Tour Day 2.
For the first two days I drove almost non-stop (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, then Michigan). I decided to stop at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on the shore of Lake Superior and take some pictures. Two days before the trip I got a Nikon D200 DSLR and two lenses, a 18-70 mm kit lens and a 80-400 mm VR telephoto lens. All I knew about using the camera was from what I read in the manual — not much.
Reflections at Lilly Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.
When ever possible, I stop at Lilly Lake. It is part of Rocky Mountain National Park, but outside the paid access part of the park along Colorado Highway 7. There is a mother duck and eight ducklings sleeping in the shadows on the far side of the lake in the first panorama image. I have also included a closer view of the ducks through a telephoto lens.
