Featured Image on the Lowepro Holiday Website

loweproBig thanks to Lowepro for running one of my winter photos on the front page of their website for the 2013 holiday season. As a longtime pro who’s been using their bags for nearly my entire career, it’s an honor to work with them and have my imagery featured so prominently.

As a Lowepro professional, I’m able to offer special exclusive discounts to my readers. Click through to the Lowepro site, use discount code LP20 in your shopping cart and save 20% on your order. (US customers only.)

I shot this hoar frost tree photo a few years ago at Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins, Colorado with my trusty Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D lens, handheld 180/sec @ f/10. I love using the telephoto for landscapes, because it helps isolate the subject against a looming, soft background.

These days, my favorite landscape tele is the Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/4G ED VR. Not only is it much lighter, it costs half as much as the heavier f/2.8 version, and the VR lets me handhold shots considerably slower than I ever could with my older non-VR tele. (Read my full review of this lens here.)

Whether you’ve got rain, ice, sleet, snow sand or sunshine, I hope you’re enjoying December so far. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
