Taken at Southwold beach 20.8.2010
Simon had texted me to say grab a packed lunch and lets head down to Southwold as he wanted to try out his new Tamaron 70-300mm lens he had just got for our 5 year anniversary present from me.
So off we went on arrival I realised again I was dressed for a cooler climate and here at the beach it was sweltering Black jeans and walking boots not a good idea.
After a good walk from the Pier end to the harbour end Simon put his new lens onto my D90 body for me too try. A total different way of thinking is needed, you can zoom in from such a distance I am so used to my 18-105 lens, this took some getting Used to.
These children I captured from the top path looking down a long way onto the beach and I am just amazed at the range.
Glad to say Simon very pleased with is new Lens and he got some fantastic shots from a 3 hour outing. hopefully he will share some with us soon.
First go with a zoom to 300mm
