Thanks to the compact size of this lens, I can justify stuffing it in my shoulder bag for a short trip.  Good thing I did, too, my future father-in-law spotted this guy while walking the dog, and called me from down the block to come check it out:



Nice clarity on the shot!

Taken long after the sun had gone down, the mist rising from the river and meadows was filling the Stour Valley. The river can just be seen in the left of the picture, and the steeple of Dedham church is just right of centre.

Shot with the 6D and 70-300L @125 mil, ISO 1600, f5.6, 1/50th. A six frame hand held panoramic.

Lovely color palettes.  I find the color rendering out of the 70-300L to be excellent!

Thanks Peter & Dustin. I really like this one and it was good to capture such a serene, quiet part of the day.

This lens remains one of my absolute favorites.  It doubles as a relatively easy to pack along, super sturdy landscape lens:
