Long Lens Discipline


This morning's solo bush drive, Warby Range, NE Victoria.
Foolishly decided to give the fisheye a rest and take only the 40-150mm.
Good discipline I said to myself until realising the lens was just way too wide for the job.
Thus there was no alternative but to resort to the phone, - I won't repeat the invectives!



Idyllic conditions, big blue sky, sunny and warm. A mob of kangaroos by the water hole bounded away before I could grab the camera


Primal Grass Trees stood silently aware of my presence.

A landscape that could only be Oz Mark, lovely to see. Shame about the roos.

Thanks Phill and Barrie. Can't claim a senior's concession; it was decision rather than oversight to take only the long lens, as for the last few shoots I've used the fisheye exclusively.

The intelligence of the masses is small, they must be told a thousand times

(especially with regard to lens collars, I might add)

Re: Long Lens Discipline

I was referring to guys who put a lens collar on back to front and can't get it to lock.
