Bridge Tops

Mostly, the day was quite blue, clear, and sunny.

I took this image from across the bay using my new AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED (to give the lens its full mouthful of a designation).

The lens was at 200mm, the maximum focal length, and mounted on a tripod–with the Nikon 2X teleconverter (AF-S TC-20E II) between the lens and the camera.

Multiplying this out, you get a 35mm equivalence of 600mm: 200mm (lens) X 2 (teleconverter) X 1.5 (focal conversion factor for my D70)–which probably explains the apparent “graininess” of the image.

I took the picture with Julian from Indian Rock on Friday–the day I held him out of school to go sailing on the Adventure Cat.
