May 27th – Really big things


This photo was taken earlier in the month, using the magnificent 70-200mm f2.8L. The “L” in the title doesn’t mean “Loan”, but sadly I have to return this lens to its owner.

The ‘landscape’ is the Port Botany container terminal. About 90* to the left of where I was standing to take photo’s of aeroplanes taking off and landing.

The odd thing with landscapes is that you would usually employ a lens in the 10-24mm range. To capture this much information (and as clearly as this) at this focal length is quite amazing in itself.

It goes to show – everything was in a scale of Big today.

Considering my current lens collection, one of these lenses is the next logical step for me. At 70mm, this is the ‘narrow’ end of the focal range for this lens, which is also the longest focal range in my current every day lens – the Tamron 24-70mm f2.8.

Being surrounded by all of this serious hardware, the biggest question for me is – do the fish plucked from these waters actually taste any good?!
