Gear used to make these images

I have used Nikon gear since I started this journey of photography. As one can imagine, the gear has been "upgraded" over the years and probably I will change it a little more as time goes by, but the process of making images remains the same.

About 95-98% of my images are created with Tripod use, although with improved VR (Vibration Reduction, in Nikon language) technology, there has been a growing belief that handheld are as sharp. I have not implemented this concept in my photography yet, as I don't have the steadiest of hands and thus want sharpest possible images with use of a tripod.
