Santa came early in 2014, as I treated myself to a new long zoom lens. I took some test shots in the village with it and the older long zoom lens and was delighted with the image quality it produced. I also rather liked some of the shots I took. One of the barbed wire shots has a tiny spider next to one of the barbs.
The wonderfully folded fields near Stathmiglo don’t always grow potatoes or carrots. In 2014 there was a crop of barley or wheat, and from my viewpoint with the low warm sun, the texture had a chenille-like quality.
