Grand Haven Lighthouse captured by Z 9 / Z70-200f2.8 w/Z2x
Lighthouse, ice, and giant waves, it’s got Moose written all over it! Yet, it has taken me decades to finally make it to the shore of Lake Michigan and chase them. All you really need are freezing temps (10 degrees or less) and a lot, a lot of wind (we had 28mps winds). Then you stand there and shoot! Standing on ice, I went with handholding the Z 9 / Z70-200f2.8 w/2x combo, for over three hours and shot nearly 5k images! I know I know, that’s a helluva lot and I can’t blame getting carried away nor the speed of the Z 9. I wanted THE shot cause I have waited years for this moment. I took advantage of the Z 9 to give me the option to pick THE one after I warmed up. What you see here is the image right out of the camera, Auto WB, no Exp Comp, 3DAF, I just had to keep from blowing away. It was a great, great afternoon, a high I’m still riding chasing the image!
