The UPS truck came bumping up the drive yesterday, just before the rain. The driver disembarked and handed me a not-too-carefully wrapped package from Melville, New York … it was my D600, at last. Like a kid at Christmas I quickly opened the box. The enclosed receipt read, “RPL shutter, CLN lp filter, FRMWR upgrade.” Wondrous! Nikon had replaced the offending shutter, cleaned the offending image sensor, and upgraded the camera’s firmware (a variety of what is more commonly known as software). Life is good. Tomorrow’s schedule is full and some of what is planned has the potential for offering up photographic opportunity. Let’s hope. The image below was taken last May on a walk to record images of the spring Lady Slipper.
