I spent a few days trying out my new 200-500mm lens.? I went to a spot near my home where I was able to get a lot of nice photos of birds and landscapes.? ENJOY.
This is the first of a new addition to my website. ?I will continue to add both Rockhound Trips and Photo Trips, while combining them into one post on occasion.
Doug and I headed up to Mount Saint Helens today. ?I had read a weather report that said thunder storms were predicted, and I wanted to see if I could get some lightening pictures. ?Alas it was not to be.
The gate to Johnston Ridge was closed so we had to stop at the Hummocks Trail parking lot and hike out the trail for 1/2 mile to get a good look at the mountain.
There were some wildflowers blooming, but there should be a lot more a little later.
The followingimages are a few that I was able to take while there. ?All the images were taken with a Nikon D750 and Nikon 20-300 AF lens.
Enjoy the images.
