Hello all.

Excuse if this has been asked.

Is December a good time to head to St.Mart
If so how is the weather, sun etc. Best days to go.

Any wide angles recommended for Nikon?

Thanks

Steven

Hi Steven,

I was there in January. Weather is good, although you can experience temporary (heavy) showers. From Maho Beach, you can always find a good sun orientation. Watch the time tables, as some heavies do not come daily. AF A340 does, but not Corsair B747 nor KLM.

Whatever the camera brand, lenses like 24-70 for the heavies and 70-200 for the smaller airplanes is usually sufficient. A wider angle (14mm or below or even fisheye) is usefull for special effects from the beach;

Cheers
Patrick
