Trying out a new lens...Tamron 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD


Yesterday, my new lens arrived.  It was a yippy skippy moment.  I pulled it out and started chasing my cat, Mouse, around the house. She has forgiven me because of copious amounts of dried salmon. 

During vacation, I worked on my bird series and found that I missed a huge number of shots.  I just couldn't get close enough. My Nikkor 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX just didn't make it.  It just didn't have the reach. 


These are the first of, hopefully, many shots.  I haven't even begun to put the lens to the test.  The only thing I have figured out is that it's really not a handheld lens.  I guess I'll be pulling out my monopod out.

Stay warm...we are expecting 4-8 inches of snow....

Catching up...still processing photos

I arrived home several weeks ago with piles of dirty clothes and a dusty house.  That's the way of things after vacation.  This time I also had thousands of photos to process.  Here's a few...I'll be back with more later...














Stay warm...I'm off to baby my cold and edit more photos...
