Merry Christmas to ME - Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM lens

So I got myself a Christmas present, of which recently was the first opportunity (in a break at work) to use my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM lens…

First shot is a frond of one of my Cyathea ferns, the other, Alyssum flowers… Pretty happy to see what else I can use it on!!

A return to some photography I have wanted to get back into!!

G'day, and welcome to 2022...

I have been working a LOT lately, and I mean a lot.... This week has been 42hrs, whilst last week, 54hrs including 9.5hrs on Christmas Day!!! Today was also day 13 worked of 13, and tomorrow is my one and only day off in three weeks, so I am hoping to spend the day resting up before another hectic day at work!!!

Working in the pathology sector, as you could imagine is rather busy (unsure why 😂) and todays work trip took me across the Blue Mountains to Lithgow. The day was hot, hotter to the East, but a really nice drive along the 'Bells Line of Roads'. However, when I got to my location, they were closed, as were the next two at Springwood and in Glenmore Park, so it really seemed a waste of a day to be honest....

One of the good things about the day though was, a brief stop along 'Doctors Gap Road' in the Vale of Clywdd, and where I stopped was a small patch of interesting flowers... The area is dry, and had a great contrast with the blue sky!! I even managed to photograph a bee!!!! (iPhone photos)

Here is also the farms at the foot of the mountains, along the western side.... A lovely day really!!!

My aim is, moving forward, to restart the blog and post something interesting from the day.
