Nikon AF-S 28mm f1.8 G

Earth Day with a wide angle lens

Today is Earth Day...going through by folders I see quite a few photos that show our impact on Nature. Yet, I decided to post this one, which I had already posted once and elsewhere. In the same shot, zooming in, I see different layers with signs of human impact, courtesy of the Nikon AF-S 28mm f1.8G. But I will leave it to you to count those layers, if you feel like it.

On a cloudy day, the sun breaks through the thick clouds as if to cast some light on a fallen angel. It should not take Poirot to find the culprit for yet another casualty...still, I had to ask a local who pointed her finger at a power line high above. In the background, a nest and another stork, alone... is it waiting?

Nikon D600, Nikon AF-S 28mm f1.8G, 1/250, ISO160, f/16.

One aside note for the camera and lens, just because I do not own them anymore. The D600 is a great camera, ill-fated due to the oil splatter issue on the sensor. I just say that I had two of these, as the first one was return on warranty due to a mysterious sudden death, but neither had those sensor debris issues so commonly discussed on the internet. For those starting now, I dare say that a good second hand unit of this camera is an excellent option for a first full-frame Nikon camera. I loved mine and I sold it in order to upgrade my camera and as a purely "economic" decision. As for the 28mm f1.8G, that was a little great lens that I often miss, but I sold it as a good deal and due to the fact that I did not use it enough and it was taking up precious, even if little, real estate inside my bag.
