Europe With The Nikon D7100 by Jonathan Zaharek (Instagram):

This past March, my family and I had the privilege to go on vacation to 10 countries in Europe over a duration of 18 days and, if you know my family, you’ll understand that our traveling is very “play it by ear”. After this past trip, we need a vacation! The countries consisted of Spain, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, and Iceland in that order. The reason why our travels are so crazy is because all we do is plan our locations (the countries and sightseeing), then drive, and don’t book a place till a couple hours before we stop. Anyways, I am an 18 year-old, self taught, landscape photographer from Ohio, but currently living (going to college) in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. I have been doing photography like this for about 2 years now and have been able to travel to 44 out of the 50 states and 13 countries. I want to do this as a full time career, but I’m still waiting for that “sovereign spark”. I have 9 total pictures from this trip and would like to share them with you while telling you about them...So, let’s begin!

Nikon-4k-video-logo

Nikon gear at the International Space Station (ISS)

Astronaut Jeff Williams aboard the International Space Station highlights a favorite activity of crew members while aboard: Earth photography. On his fourth space mission and third Expedition on the ISS, Williams demonstrates the cameras and lenses used to capture still and video imagery of the station and its various visiting vehicle spacecraft like the Soyuz, Progress and Orbital ATK Cygnus cargo craft. He then floats into the Cupola – his favorite “window on the world” from which breathtaking views of the Earth are taken and shared with everyone on Earth.
