Lowcountry Wildlife

My good friend and fellow photographer, Gary, and I went out the other day on his boat to cruise the Kiawah River in search of wildlife and just enjoy the great outdoors. As you can see by the shot he took of me, I mounted my Nikon D300 + Nikkor 200-400 f4.0 VR + Nikkor TC14eII onto my Wimberly Sidekick gimball head on top of my Bogen 3221 Tripod. Why the D300 instead of the D3? Because the 1.5x crop factor on that camera gives that lens an effective focal length of 300-600. Add the 1.4x converter and I’ve got the equivelent of 840mm of reach at f5.6. The whole setup fits snugly into the bow of his boat like a gun touret! As you might guess, we had a BLAST!!!
