new lens!

by Mary Beth

I have been wanting a bigger lens for a long time and finally bought the Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II to go with my 7D Mark II.

It’s been so cold here and with so much snow it has been hard to track down some wildlife lately.  Yesterday I decided to try the Animas River Trail in downtown Durango to shoot some fast moving water birds.  I was not disappointed.  The lens is fast and takes beautiful sharp images without a tripod.
