It happens here

Since two weeks I’m a proud owner of a new lens (Nikkor 28-300) for Zilla (Nikon D750) as well as an unhappy person, because the weather is too awful to do a proper photo walk. It’s cold and rainy. Lucky me, last weekend I spent 10 minutes more with my parents, therefore I didn’t drive right into a gigantic hailstorm. The streets were either covered with hailstones or with mud from the slopes besides the street. Really scary and disgusting weather! Therefore I took in two weeks only a few pictures, some of them when I walked with Felix to some appointments in the inner city.

Of course I had to photograph my favorite monument: Maria Theresia (1717-1780), the only female ruler of the Habsburg family. Funny most people forget, that she was not an elected and ruling empress but empress by marriage. I was impressed by the lens, because I came almost eye-to-eye with her majesty. When I crossed the Ring I decided to photograph the monument of Prince Eugen (1663-1736) – yes, again, because I like the monument. I didn’t move around, but photographed right from the same spot. Thanks to the lens, Felix didn’t scare the ducks, because I didn’t need to come closer. Jeez, with the last picture I almost knocked Prince Eugen from his horse!

Glückwunsch zum neuen Objektiv! Es bringt neue Perspektiven und deine Bilder sehen gut aus.  Ist das Objektiv nicht zu schwer um ein langes Photowalk zu unternehmen? Ich habe auch ein neues und überlege 2-Mal ob ich es wirklich den ganzen Tag mitschleppen will, was denn wieder Schade ist…

Danke! 😊
Das Wetter so eklig, dass die Tour nur kurz war. Wie es sich "anhängen" wird, wird sich erst bei Schönwetter zeigen. Ich glaube, ich werde mich aus reiner Freude tapfer abschleppen ...

Gratuliere zum Zuwachs zum 'Objektivpark'. (Was für ein dämliches Wort, ich lache mich immer scheckig, wenn ich irgendwo lese: Ich habe ein neues Objektiv in meinem "Objektivpark".) Ich liebe mein 300 mm von Canon. (Ist allerdings Festbrennweite). Aber 300mm ist schon super, nur das Gewicht ist nicht ohne.  Das 300mm Entenbild ist schön knackig (Prinz Eugen sowieso smile) in der Schärfe. Ich denke, damit wirst Du viel Freude haben!

Naja für das ganz große Paparazzolinse braucht man vermutlich einen Objektivparkplatz ... 😉
Also bei dem Entenpaar war ich echt erstaunt, dass die so "zählen wir die Federn" scharf geworden sind. 
Hab' vorhin meiner Freundin deine Moselfotos gezeigt, sie war begeistert, aber bei den Nilgänsen ist sie geschmolzen. Federvieh ist halt flauschig.

Love the shot of Prince Eugen (or Eugene as he is Anglicised). Certainly in Britain he is often overlooked, falling completely in the shadow of Marlborough, but it was their partnership that enabled the allied victory... but we tend not to like anything that distracts us from English heroes!

At the moment almost everything is working against me especially: weather, weather, weather and did I mention the weather? 
Big sigh.

I love that lens and I believe you will love it as well, when the weather finally cooperates. It will make you lazy, just be aware; easire to zoom in that walk the few steps, but sometimes that's what it takes.

Ok I have to ask.....did you use a tripod on the photos that had your lens fully extended? For example #6 your exif indicates that your lens was maxed out and your shutter speed was below the focal length and yet the photo seems very sharp. Just curious.😃

I photographed in manual mode and experimented with almost everything. Most of the pictures are ok, but this seemed to be the best. 

The camera is heavy, but its weight helps me a lot to hold it in a calm way and not as usual (like a bartender is shaking a cocktail).

I didn't carried around a tripod too - Felix on a leash is just enough to manage ... I'm glad, he is a very fast learning "assistent" (sit, wait, let's go). 😉
