cleveland birds 12-2012 (1)

It was cold, freezing cold.   The kind of cold that forces most people to walk directly to their desired location with zero dilly dallying and a resentment for red lights.  What were these birds doing ?  Shouldn’t they be hiding out in a Home Depot or something ?

Yes, the 14mm is an amazing lens.  This lens has two drawbacks.  It is very wide, giving you few options once it’s on your camera.  Secondly, the lens, the actual glass is impossible to protect.  You can’t use a filter and the hood barely offers protection.   While shooting with this lens, you have to constantly be aware of anything that could strike your lens.

It was a feeding frenzy in Armenia.  Swallows fly the summer sky in the thousands.
