Nervous Bokeh…

More opportunities for some mirrored reflections whilst hiking in Berowra. This time with the mangroves hanging over this pool of water.

NIKON D750 + 28.0-300.0 mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 135 mm, 1/160 sec at f/5.6, ISO 1250

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

I’d only brought the camera body with one lens (the all purpose Nikon 28-300 ultrazoom) on this weekend trip away. The extreme focal range is very handy – especially for a hike like this. Having such an all purpose lens does come with some compromises however. One of those is the fairly nervous bokeh it can introduce in the out of focus areas. Sometimes you can even use it to some good effect.

and here is one of my daughter on this chilly morning… don’t have to worry about the bokeh if you frame so the background in the distance is in darkness still :)…
