It was a beautiful day here in the Scottish Borders. Sky a perfect azure blue, marked only with the chalk marks of cumulus and high flying jets. Around us, intense agriculture turns the fields into softly undulating waves of emerald surf, while on the Berwickshire coast we find a sea worn fence. Ripe for an under-used wide angle lens – the Canon 17-40L. A lens full of optical imperfections, distortions and vignetting. So much so that I often forget about it. On this occasion though, I couldn’t put it down – it’s peculiar eye making great sense of wide open spaces and close focussed foreground. Great stuff. A flawed lens, that’s fun to use and creates a special shot. More later, but here’s the fence.
