Today was the first trip out with the full new camera kit – yesterday I traded in the D200 and lenses and picked up a Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 lens to go with the 24-70 f/2.8.

I headed down to Cumberland Basin in Bristol and took some pretty industrial stuff – photos that turned out really nicely in black and white. I started off around the Floating Harbour/Avon locks, then headed along the Portway where there are a couple of old jetties that are decaying rather nicely. Finally, just by Bridge Valley Road, there are a couple of old bits of rail tunnel that have been blocked up.

There are quite a lot here, but I took 300 shots today and I like what I’ve got. I’m not sure if it’s the D600 or the high-spec lensesthat’s made the difference  (probably both) but these shots are really crisp and sharp. Liking the new kit.
