Went out this morning with my rifle and camera. The rifle was for feral hogs. The camera was for images like these.
Shot with Nikon D300 and Nikkor 300mm f/4.0. Handheld and braced against the edge of my deer blind. I think the 3rd and 5th images are my favorites from this series.
Taken about 30 minutes before sunset on the first evening of deer season west of Mineral Wells Texas. You can see we are in enjoying our two weeks of autumn in north central Texas.
On this outing my camera was better equipped for wildlife than landscapes, but the wildlife were uncooperative. This scene was several hundred yards away from me. I was using a Nikon D300 with Nikkor 300mm f/4.0. As the sun dropped lower on the horizon it illuminated the stone amongst the cedar and elm trees.
