Default I said goodbye to an old friend last week...

I used to photograph a lot of birds, but over the last year or two I've gone more towards the landscape end of things. Looking at my kit, my telephoto went from being my most used lens to hardly being used at all. As a result, I decided to let her go and get a new wide-angle lens which better suits my current style of photography.

So a couple of weeks ago, I took my baby out for one final blaze of glory, then sent her off to someone who will make better use of her. So with that, here's one of the last shots I took with my 400mm:


I'll miss having that kind of reach, but going to the opposite end of the spectrum (15mm, and very compact), I think my new friend will be put to good use over the next few years:



Enjoy!

That middle shot is shocking it's so beautiful. They're all, as always, wonderful photographs.

Thanks! If you've got any tips on how to make a Quantaray 18-200mm, 6.3f lens take incoming motion shots, I'd love to hear them.
