This is what I would call a 'Chocolate Box' scene.... The village of West Tanfield very close to where I live. Was a hot summers day today, light a bit harsh but just had to get out with camera. Lens was my 'walkabout' Sigma 18-200 OS.

Well I bought the Samyang 85mm F1.4 lens for portraits. Is a fairly unknown brand from Poland but is pretty damned good: Samyang 85 mm f/1.4 Aspherical IF I also have the fisheye lens which I'm also very impressed with: Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical IF MC Fish-eye Both of these lenses are relatively inexpensive and certainly impressive for the money....
Will experiment a bit more when I have more time and upload my results. This photo was literally a quick snap of Sam taken in our kitchen.

Well my daughter Lindsay came home this weekend with her new pet bunny... took this with the 50mm 1.8 so as to avoid using the flash on the poor wee thing... Raised the ISO too to about 500. Thought this suited black and white, though the colour version was rather nice too.

Went back to Plompton Rocks for the bluebells again this year, lucky with the weather and bluebells out in full! As usual... took Sam along to be my model, he was as patient as ever! Did a bit of tadpole fishing along the way..
