Artist's Description

Another image from the official open day at the Vice-Regal residence Government House Hobart in February 2012, this time from the North side. This was one of the first opportunities I had to try out my newly-acquired Carl Zeiss f/4 85mm Pro-Tessar telephoto lens for my various Zeiss Ikon Contaflice SLRs. Although the 85mm does not have quite as much “pull” as the 115mm Pro-Tessar, sometimes you do not need so much for landscape work, and the minimum focus distance of the 85mm lens is rather less. It promises to be a very useful addition to my Contaflex kit bag and will be more suitable for portrait use as well.
