Spring is early this year
Posted By: tcom, 01-21-2007, 01:23 PM

With the warm winter so far here in Switzerland, I discovered on a walk yesterday that the nature shows already some signs for spring. A smaller tree is about to show flowers.

I did not expect to see early signs for spring and the only lens I had on the walk was the FA80-320, I tried to make the best out of it:

K10D, FA80-320, 1/250s f/8.0 at 240.0mm iso500

K10D, FA80-320, 1/500s f/8.0 at 260.0mm iso500

But finally the winter should come. Snow is expected on Tuesday and freezing temperature by the end of the week.

Comments and critiques are welcome

Thank you for your comments.

I am surprised by the good result. The 80-320 is not really considered a macro lens, but did a nice job on these photos.
