Via Flickr: I spent a nice morning shooting the amazing rock formations at Duncansby Head near John O’Groats. It was cold and windy and threatened rain but worth it to get a nice patch of colour in the sky and a nice infusion of warmth as the sun finally rose.
I bought a new lens, Canon 16-35 f4 IS, to replace my good old 17-40 f4. I managed to grab a few shots with it in George Square (and Royal Exchange Square) this evening and I must say I’m so impressed. These were taken at near half second exposures and they’re pin sharp even though I was simply holding the camera as normal, no tripod or anything.
It should be added that this is the first anniversary of the terrible evening when an out of control bin lorry drove through George Square behind this big wheel killing 6 people.
