Today was a full day playing with my new Canon 500mm L lens and shooting birds. Even though the horses called me, the lure of the fancy lens hypnotized me. It was a fantastic birding day, with more than six new birds that I’ve never seen before.
With that great zoom, I was able to capture the Thomas Point Light House from Thomas Point Park. It was an odd morning for lighting with this blueish haze that covered the water that seemed to radiate with heat.
