Going through images not processed and did this one today.  

I've seen many stunning images from many authors, using a variety of different equipment, and the only and absolute truth is that all you need to do is get out there and enjoy. 

This was taken with a 13 year old D300.  500 AF-S II.  1/640 F7.7 at 400.  Tripod was the Gitzo 1548 which I still have and a Wimberly Gymbal.  

Please feel free to view uncompressed.  

Thank you for looking.

Be safe
Make your life spectacular!

Great looking back pose, nice eye contact and excellent feather detail on this lovely shot, David.
D300 was a good camera.
One of my friends still has it along with the D500.

Stunning! Great eye contact, detail, and background. A little more room at the bottom if you have it.
