As some of you know, I had on order of 1200 recent photos to dig through. Others may remember that I bought a new super-telephoto zoom lens in May. Because of the large numbers involved, I decided to split it into three posts:
Quick background: After the initial photos I posted in May, I did some walk around in New Hampshire and a long weekend on Cape Cod over Memorial Day weekend (last weekend in May). This was a time I was doing a lot of testing and experimenting. I took about 400 photos. I then spent two weeks on Cape Cod, with a bit of time off, in the middle of June. I spent a lot of time on the kayak taking photos and a few walks in the salt marshes and woods. This came in at about 800 photos.
So here is a sampling of some of those photos, pretty much the “best of” of the 1200 that are not osprey photos – I had a ton of osprey photos ;) As you may notice, the lens can do a pretty good job with macros as well as pure telephoto.
Most of the images are from Cape Cod, but a few (cardinal, catbird, others) are New Hampshire. I had some issues with accidentally shifting settings on my camera, so many were taken in not ideal conditions…
Anyway, you can click on any image below to get a larger, more detailed view.
Hope you enjoyed!
