There are always a reason to use a tripod at times such as to blur moving water, lower shutter speed to keep at a low iso, when using a long lens to help hold the lens, indoor shots without flash and lots of other reasons.

Of course, and we have four very heavy tripods, but the point is that to squeeze "wow" shots out of a D800(E), one does not necessarily need a tripod. The shots shown by the OP could easily have been excellently sharp, even hand held.
