September Wallpaper / Hang on to Summer

OK, so September’s free wallpaper download isn’t going to make headlines like Apple announcing the iPhone 5 today.  But because August came and left in a blink of an eye let’s hang on to summer with this month’s wallpaper.  In a few weeks, at the end of this month we’ll be wondering where all the green leaves went.

This was taken in Bermuda when Aiofe and I went in May 2012.  It’s of a mangrove tree that is growing from the water of underground caves.  If you ever get a chance to visit underground caves take it.  It’s an amazing experience.

For this shot I was mainly wanting to test out my new camera body (at the time), the Nikon D800, and its ability to capture a full tonal range (i.e. dark areas of the trees in contrast with the very bright sky).  I also wanted to put my new wide angle lens, the Nikon 16-35mm f4.0 to the test, and its VR (Vibration Reduction) abilities.  I shot this at 1/40 sec @ f4.0 (ISO 100).  Usually with a scenario like this you’d want to use a tripod but the Nikon 16-35mm VR features allowed me to shoot this handheld at 1/40sec.  A great wide angle lens for sure!
