Trip to TenKiller Lake

Going to the resort is a burnt cabin/lake home.

We took a trip to a local lake called TenKiller in Oklahoma and stayed at a resort call Burnt Cabin. Sounds like the trailer for a horror movie, does it not? The lake was clear, calm, welcoming and the locals were friendly.
I decided to use a Nikon 18mm – 135mm purchased for as a back-up and portrait lens. I have never used it on an essay or project, so I had no idea how it would perform. It did very well, under most situations using auto focus and came in handy for extreme close ups (within 6-8 in from subject with flash).

Mad Dog Cloud

The weather change and SLC (scary looking clouds) blew in and made the lake very rough.

The Visitor

Back at the cabin, we had a visitor. (Nikon 18-135 set at 135, ISO 200, 1/60 at f/9.0 with flash)

Hard Rain

storm started and brought heavy rain. (Nikon set at 26mm, ISO 800, 1/60 at f/11)

Morning after the storm

In the early morning after the storm, everything was wet (outside). (Nikon set at 135mm, ISO 2500, 1/80 at f/5.6)

Fog on the lake

I took a walk to the lake and found light patches of fog. (Nikon set 18mm, ISO 400, 1/13 at f/22)

Out of step

The sun came up and the geese were out for breakfast, some were out of step as they strolled past. (Nikon set 135mm, ISO 800, 1/1000 at f/5.6)

The Cabin

The cabin; not burnt or not scary. Just home for a few days. (Nikon 18mm, ISO 400, 1/250 at f/8.0)©2012 Jim Norwood. To see more images;
