Searching for Black Grouses

No clouds and sunrise. It's a match that doesn't work well. Even with couple clouds the sky would be so much more intresting.
We found birds but this time they were too far away. For the next time we know where to go. With D800 I didn't get anything publishable, but this is from V1 with 30-110.

Night photography from the cemetery

Even though I have a D800 with quite expensive lenses to shoot when the light is low, I like to take with me the V1 and a small Manfrotto tripod. I miss only one thing: good manual focus. At least I haven't yet learned to use V1 MF-function well enough to use it daily when shooting landscape like I use it with bigger cameras.

That's why the second image is little bit out of focus. I used AF-A and I think it missed the focus and I just didn't bother to check it.

Bad weather panorama

A week ago I was watching one of the best finnish panorama photographer's show on a big screen while he was telling about the pictures.
Here is a one quick four image panorama stiched together from todays scenery trip with a car. Hand held V1 + 30-110 with manual settings.

I bet this won't be my last panorama with this kit :)
