A couple of shots with my new (to me) DA* 60-250mm f4 lens. I think we are going to work well together

Great pix. First one, when I cropped the forest coastline out...looks to me...very painterly and I mean that very positively.

Thank you all for the kind words! I always feel way too lucky to be living in this part of the world when you can see stuff like this only a short boat ride away or sometimes even from shore on our small island.

Yes, I agree, that makes for a much better composition. Thank you!
