Zoom Lens on a Winter Day
Something told me that day to take my DSLR camera with my zoom lens and teleconverter (1.5x) ,which made my zoom go to 405 mm. Off I went for my walk. It was a grey, overcast day not to cold at least I thought, so I took my hiking gloves. About 30 minutes later I switch to winter gloves, there was definitely wind chill factor in the air (-14).
I heard a loon so I focused the camera to see if I could find it. I did..It was out quite far in the harbour but my zoom brought it in. I stayed for 25-30 minutes watching it. It was amazing experience…the loon caught a fish and ate it. Later it came in closer to shore…then it got up and dry its wings…. Then I saw a grey jay, squirrel and a seal on my walk. An exceptional day for photography and nature. Now I want a bigger zoom.
