Wanaka tree

The view through a new lens


At the week-end I played around with my great big new lens. I'm much happier with it than with the kit lens that came with the camera; I think the colours are better and the images don't seem to be as 'flat'. The evening I got the lens I took a few photos in my room and was stunned by what it could do. from the other side of the room I got great magnification from my 'test subjects'.

Then on Saturday I went to one of my favourite spots, a nature reserve close to my home.

On Sunday I mooched around the garden, admiring the butterflies that were making themselves drunk on the windfall pears.
