Canon 50mm

I've hardly used my Canon 50mm lens. Today I took it (and only it) with me to the beach. I found out that composing with a prime lens is a challenge. OK, it hardly should have come as a surprise. I knew it, but today I really felt it in practise for the first time (while cursing that I didn't have any other lens with me).

Something Zebedee found and played with...

(other things he found and played with or ATE today: a dead dogfish, a shoe, a piece of car tyre, a dead bird, and a myriad of other things I missed, no doubt)

I wished that I had the wide angle with me so that I could have captured all the beautiful sky.... with the 50mm I could only get some unremarkable small parts of it.

Well, it was lovely to be by the sea nevertheless. I need a lot more practise with this lens.

Loved all the pics, but that last one sure captures the feeling .. the spirit, of being next to the powerful wind and water! Beautiful. :)
