Tim's One Photograph a Day

Tree Tops against the Blue Sky.

Tree Tops Against the Blue Sky.

Simple, almost abstract.

It is easy to get very lazy with zoom lenses. Even the “standard” lenses nowadays tend to have zoom capabilities, but there is something special about a fixed lens. Of course, the limitation is that you have to move yourself rather than change the zoom. The payback is a cheaper lens and often a sharper shot. Today, we are looking up. It was late in the day, so the Tree Tops are catching the sunlight from the right.

Whereas the zoom lenses I usually use are around the £1,000 mark. The lens I used today came from eBay – and was less than £50! It is a great lens – maybe a little slow to focus, but as you can see, it is really sharp.
