Meet Ayra

I'd like you all to meet Ayra. My new Canon 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS telephoto zoom lens...


She is amazing! I can focus on even the tiniest things from an unbelievable distance with her, which saves me lots of moving around. Here are a few photos I took with Ayra yesterday...

I have the shore in focus on this one, and you can just see tiny snowflakes falling down right in front of those ducks. I thought it was pretty cool how it turned out! You can zoom in (click on) the photo for a better view.

Christmas light bokeh!

We have lights outside that change colour (from red, to purple, to blue, to purple, and then to red again). I took this shot while they were changing from purple to blue. Love the colours!

a single ray of light can brighten even the darkest forest.
