Wind Waves And A New Lens

I read somewhere Connecticut was the least windy state in the USA. If that is true I feel sorry for the rest of you. These photographs were taken last week on the shore. As you can see by the waves and mist it was fairly windy.

All 3 shots were taken with a 50mm prime lens, AKA no zoom.  In general ‘if you don’t like what you see in the view finder, move somewhere else’. In hind site testing the lens at the shore in November was probably not a great idea. The last thing I wanted was to step into the cold surf.

Overall the lens, Canon 50mm 1.8, works well. It is best suited for portraits and sunrise shots where low light is an issue. But it’s fun to play with and so tiny it fits in my pocket.
