Having indulged in presenting images taken with the 10-20 for the last several days, here's something different.

I also invested in the Canon EF-S 17-85 IS which has macro too. So last Saturday I had a play with that too!

In the churchyard of Guisborough Parish Church, right next to the Priory there was a tomb surrounded by railings which had obviously been there for some time. In this image you can see that the top of the railing is partially embedded in the bark of the tree, and that ivy has started to embrace all.

I think the flat face of the railing is about half an inch across and that the lens was about 12 inches from the subject - as close as it goes.

1/125s f8 ISO 100

Thanks for looking - if you have time you can view larger than lifesize if you go large. I would appreciate any comments you may have - thank you, Mike

Mike you've made some very profitable investments, this is a gem. Beautiful contrasts in texture, glorious sheen on those ivy leaves. Love it.

PS Bill is out collecting a new purchase, he will no doubt post his news in due course!

Very crisp and sharp with beautiful colour rendition. A good investment I think. The detail is staggering.
I have returned home with my purchase and have charged the battery, but the handbook weighs about 3 kg and I don't have time to read it today.
Regards
Bill

Once again you found a great motif and turned it into a terrific shot - the title is well chosen, too.
