Trying Out My New Lens


Several years ago, I had this zoom telephoto lens that I enjoyed using – so much so that it became a regular fixture on my camera. And then one day, while I was driving a rented car out in Alberta, someone cut me off and I slammed my left foot on the clutch. Oops, that was the brake! I was not driving my standard and the car came to a very abrupt stop. Unfortunately I neglected to hang the camera strap over the head rest of the passenger seat. End result: one badly damaged zoom telephoto lens!

I tried doing without and after two years I broke down and replaced the lens and started trying it out about a week ago. These photos are some of the results from a few places I have visited in the past week with my camera. Enjoy!

    • Hi Kathy … how you doing? Been a while … summer is sure flying by, eh? Thanks for the compliment regarding the photos. It isn’t so much a new lens as it is a new replacement for a favourite lens that I broke. The lens is a Nikkor AF-S VR Zoom 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6. Before I broke the original one I had, it was a favourite. I used to use this lens on one camera body and a prime 35mm lens on another body. Gave me pretty much everything I needed. Maybe someday I’ll get a more powerful lens (600 mm?) but for now I get most of the shots with the 300 mm. Later … Jay-Dee
