Assateague Island National Seashore photographed with the Nikon D750

Earlier this week I went to photograph in Assateague Island National Seashore and nearby Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge. I wanted to put the new Nikon D750 through its paces to see how well it would do as a travel and landscape camera. I had four lenses in the kit, the Nikon 80-400 f/4.5-5.6 zoom, Nikon 70-200mm f/4 zoom, Nikon 24-120mm f/4 zoom, and the Nikon 20mm f/1.8. I have reviewed all of these lenses in addition to the camera and provided links to these reviews by clicking on their names above.

For the long shots of wild life I primarily used the 80-400 zoom, and for most of the landscape shots the 24-120mm.

A 20mm view lit by the setting sun and taken at f/7.1. It is images like this that had be really loving this lens by the time my trip was over. 

A 400mm view of a heron fishing along the wetlands at sunset. 

Wild ponies grazing on Assateague Island photographed at sunset with the Nikon D750 and 80-400mm  lens at 320mm and f/5.6.

This sunset was taken at 24mm with the Nikon 24-120mm lens.

Big dipper over Chincoteague Island taken with a Nikon D750 and 24-120mm lens at f/4, a 15 second exposure with ISO 1600. The glows on the horizon was caused by lighting from towns in the distance.
