Picking today’s choice of wallpaper has probably been my hardest decision yet since I started blogging about my wallpaper choice, but when it comes to a HDR shot to remember my Nikon D200 by, this is right up there at the very top along with the Calanais At Dusk shot.

This shot was my wallpaper for months, and I’m pretty sure I’ve still got an old Windows XP virtual machine lying around where this shot still is the desktop wallpaper of choice. And, just like the Calanais shot, it was a happy accident … five frames shot towards the end of a long day that, together, managed to capture something a little bit magical.

Well, that’s it … that’s the end of my two-week theme looking at just some of my favourite shots taken with the Nikon D200 that I finally sold recently. It was a faithful companion, and I can’t begin to describe just how much pleasure it brought me over the years.

Come back tomorrow for an extra article … 40 of my all-time favourite shots taken with the Nikon D200, and 40 of the shots my wonderful audience has chosen as their favourites.
