I Dare

early before the sun rose I stood watching this squall approach. My first instinct since I am a fair weather picture taker was to think where I would go when the rain came. My second thought was no, I dare the rain to come. I have a weather sealed camera and lens, my pack has a rain cover and I don’t care if I get wet-it’s not a cold rain anyway. I stayed and watched the rain fizzle out just before it got to me :)

    Hi Joe, that one is great...and i noticed that your camera is Nikon 750 ... what do you think about it, as iam in the process of buying it...and which lens do you recommend ...thanks again

      Hey, I think it is one of the best. It's full frame and lighter and smaller with many of the same features as the bulked up D810. I really love the low light qualities and how it can auto focus in almost darkness! Being that you like low light and night photography too, I think you will love this camera as much as I do. I bought it with the kit lens of 24-120mm f/4 and find that to be an excellent all around lens plus as a kit I think it was $300 off the normal price. I have many full frame Nikon lenses but seem to always have either the 24-120 or another favorite is the 16-35mm f/4. Seems to me you and I like wide shots and low light shots so may be you would like these two lenses also?
