7-29-13 It Was A Beautiful Day For A Swim

Saturday was a perfect weather day for swimming the Hudson River. Temperature was in the mid 80’s, very little wind and partly sunny. We could not have asked for better. I am still working on making the photographs but I wanted to get some shots onto the blog. These have been worked a bit, exposure and white balance mostly, but no magic.

– A technical note for any camera gear folks, I rented a Nikon D600 and a beautiful Nikon 24mm lens to go with my 50mm and my 70-300 zoom-
