New lens

Just a quick post to show some photos taken yesterday with my new lens. The weather wasn’t great, but it was nice to try out the lens – I am very happy with it! 

For those interested, I bought a Canon 24-105mm f4 lens (with an image stabilizer). It took me a very long time to decide which lens to replace my old 28-135mm lens with (it broke down last April), but I am really happy with this lens! The other lens I have is a Sigma 15-30mm which I really like, but wide angle only is a bit limiting. I like taking photos like the ones above… and especially since I am going to Mexico in February, I wouldn’t want to miss out on those kind of photos!

Something completely different: while sorting some photos on my computer, I found this panorama I took in March. I never stitched the images together! Taken from the top of the cable car, overlooking Tromsø island on a beautiful sunny day…

Alright, back to work for me… I had to make a list of things to do this week. Even though I don’t have much stuff left here in Norwich, there is still a lot to think about now that I am really leaving. So I’ll be running around a lot, and probably will not update my blog until next week or so. I’ll try to post before, but if not: Merry Christmas to everyone!!

  1. I have that lens as well. I love it! I use it as a prime lens and keep it on my camera for everyday shooting. Have fun with it!

    He Hanneke,

    Leuk om je weer eens te volgen via de blog. Ik ben niet zo van de mail en de hyves enzo maar toch leuk om te zien wat je doet op het moment.

    Die pano is echt geweldig trouwens.

    Succes met je nieuwe lens voor nieuwe mooie foto’s!

    Morgen is overigens het afscheid van Adrie Jacobs van de WUR. Ik ga er heen. Lijkt me wel leuk.

    Voor jou een fijne verjaardag alvast en ook fijne feestdagen natuurlijk!

    Groet,

    Aline
