Merry Christmas

 

Santa gave me a 140-600mm lens. I didn’t have time to really test it today, but here are a few quick photos of a sparrow, the Devil’s Thumb on the Sandias and the towers out in the yard. ┬áThe sparrow was taken through the window and was strongly backlit, so I had to pull the contrast way down to get detail in the bird, so the image is a little soft. I’m really happy I was able to get the lens to focus on the bird through the branches. The detail on Devil’s Thumb and Towers is very good for hand held.
