Abandoned at Sea

We took a short trip this past weekend and went to Sanibel Island.  We went fishing in the bay and there were many of these buildings on stilts sending out at sea.  I thought this abandoned one had some character.

You will probably noticed that I shot this with the new Nikon’s Z7 full frame mirrorless camera.  Having owned many mirrorless cameras and currently owning Sony’s a7RIII, I would say that Nikon has done a fantastic job with their first full frame mirrorless camera.  After using it for about a week I would say the ergonomics is great, the buttons and menus are easy to use and navigate.  The image quality is probably the best in any full frame sensor I’ve used (it should, same sensor as the D850).  This camera feels like a “real” camera, comparable to DSLR.  Only thing missing is the “eye autofocus” that you can find on the Sony mirrorless.  With that said, Sony definitely has some competition.

Last, I also purchased Zeiss 55mm Otus lens and used the new lens adapter for Nikon F mount lenses.  I would agree with other reviews, it is very comparable to Leica’s 50mm lenses on the market today.  It is large, that is the only concerning thing!

Into the fog

I woke up yesterday to a dense fog throughout our property.  As the day went on, the fog never went away.  I decided to spend some time going around the property trying to capture interesting images.  Here is one of them.
