I'm trying to get used to a new D600. I've got the same Nikkor 70-300 F4.5-5.6, a Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR and a VR Micro NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G (which is really sweet!). I haven't even attempted working with the video side yet, although I'm excited about the possibilities. I need to start carrying the camera around with me more often. The ice and snow presented some views! Another missed opportunity.
The bridge: 35MM 1/125 F11

The low angle one: 18MM 1/125 F11

The snowy hillside: 18MM 1/125 F8

Glad to hear you like the 105MM Micro Nikkor. That is one I'm looking at. I need a decent flash and a Micro lens. The 18-55 can focus pretty close, about 8-9" and is "near" macro but it isn't really a macro lens. I had a pretty sweet Nikor Nikor Micro lens back in the 80s (pretty sure it was about 100MM and somewhere around F2.8 or so, maybe even faster, had a huge piece of glass in the front) but sold it a long time ago fo fund some other projects.

Looking forward to seeing some of your shots. I am really liking this 70-300MM lens. Really sharp and light. Guess the plastic body is one knock on it, but the weigh savings is worth it to me, especially if one is hiking and lugging a 4 or 5 pound lens around all day, it gets kind of old.

Here is a B&W version of the bridge photo:
