Glacier - First Day

Hi from Glacier National Park;

It has been a cloudy, rainy day here. Got to the park mid-morning and learned they are

still working on Logan Pass. Seems they have a small snowdrift of about 70 feet to clear.

May not be open for a while. Lake McDonald was dreary today so I only took a few pictures's one. Water always blows the highlights. Hopefully I'll get better.

I have a new 70-200 Nikon VR F/2.8 lens and wanted to see how it works with my D700. I added a 1.4 Nikon teleconverter also and tried to get some bird pictures. The auto focus feature works with this setup which is very nice, but the image size is fairly small. Probably the D300 with its 1.5 crop factor would be better. I probably will use the D300 a lot for wildlife pictures.
