We had some warm weather last week, the water is surprisingly warm. Both Tess and I have been swimming a couple of times already. ( Please, no shrinkage jokes. It wasn't funny.)

Nice to see Tess isn't the only one with talent, great shots. I like the Macro and the DA21 shots best.

Thanks for commenting... if you're going to have only a few lenses those two should certainly be on the list.

The first image shows a great place for dogs and them really enjoying it too.

As you probably know kerrowdown, warm weather walks need water. It's a 2 km walk to this spot with a couple other swimming holes on the way. perfect for hot summer walks. The beach is a lot bigger by the end of the summer.

Nice series Norm. I love the second shot a lot. Amazing what four lenses can do in the proper hands.

Thanks slopez, I'm not sure my hands have ever been called "proper" before. In the studio or shooting macros, it's all about the angles. Focus on your foreground but line your foreground up with the background you want. You can never move around too much or try too many different angles. At least that's what works for me.
