So another two week visit to St. Lucia comes to an end. It has been quite hot with occasional showers which has made it a bit buggy at times, but if anything that has encouraged the many Geckos around the house. This trip I forgot my tripod/monopod (that's what you get for packing on the day of departure) but I did bring our old 105mm micro Nikkor lens. Strictly manual operation but it takes great images and I've been using manual settings more often than not so it's easy to set up. I also find the old style lenses seem to have more precise focusing and hold their focus more consistently. I was happy with a couple of my 'dinosaur' photos taken at the front entrance of our house.
