Beautiful Bermuda

A photographer's paradise!  After prevailing upon my dear husband to lug my Nikon D300s with the 70-200mm VRII lens for our first of three hot days there, I decided to leave it back in our cabin.

Shots below were taken with my simple Nikon D40x and my "walking around" lens, the Nikkor 18mm-200mm.  Nothing fancy, but it got the job done. (Click on photos to enlarge).
King's Wharf Dockyard, early morning. ISO100, f/5.6 @ 1/125s, polarized.
Bermuda Botanical Gardens on a very hot afternoon. ISO100, f/5.6 @ 1/125s.
Turtles at the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo. ISO400, f/4.8 @ 1/80s.
Beautiful Horseshoe Bay with pink sand beaches and impossibly blue skies and water. ISO100 in bright sun, f/6.3, 1/160s, polarized.

Pink sunset as seen from Hamilton. ISO200, f/5.3 @ 1/25s

Monarch butterfly on flowers.  Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo.  Only shot posted which was taken with my D300s and 70-200mm lens.  The sharpness and smooth bokeh of this lens is evident.
Bermuda's flag on the "Spirit of Bermuda" sailboat at Dockyard.  Same settings as first photo.
Above are just a sampling of the 750+ shots taken with 3 cameras.  A delight!  Ready to cruise back any time!

(P.S. I made a wonderful Bermuda cruise photo book online with MixBook .. Check them out here).
