A dull afternoon at Blea, it was sunny back at home about an hour and a half away. The light is a little eerie but the object of the exercise was to get everything sharp from front to back to test the new lens. I think I managed it, apart from the wind in the trees which I can't control. The fence has been renewed, so it'll be a year or two before it bcomes interesting.

Looks sharp to me, Malcolm. Overcast but lovely tones.

A very atmospheric Lakeland landscape with weather which has sadly been typical of this summer

Very nice - sharp, good lead in - like it Malcolm. For me, perhaps a little more contrast? Tone down the overall brightness? But the lens is superb!

Absolutely beautiful light on the hills and the grass in the fg. Looks lovely even with a dark and grey sky.
