I bought myself a new 85 mm f/1.8 lens for my Canon T2i camera. I took it with me on our Sunday dog walk this morning to try it out and although I've overexposed most of these shots (and didn't enhance any of them) I think I'm going to love this lens. It's fast, wide open and has a lot of capability. We walked to Jack Dunster Marine Biological Reserve which I call the magic park since it transcends me to a different time and place; it's on the back side of Marina Pacifica and about a 5 mile round trip walk. Here are some shots along the way - all taken with the new lens.
