Images of a Big Island

A Big Week!

After much thought, I recently purchased a Canon 70-200 f2.8 L lens and it sat in my bag for about a week before I put it into action. What a great lens! Sharp as a tack,great contrast & colour and at a good price.

Since then it has been my main lens and has tackled everything from yacht racing & landscape to a bit of candid street photography.

The last week or so has been a busy period for the Whitsundays.  Airlie Beach Race Week, Whitsunday Reef Festival and Hamilton Island Race Week and we have been blessed by some superb weather through it all. The yacht racing fleet has had to contend with light variable winds but when the days are this good who could complain?!

These images show some of what’s been happening.

  2. I recently bought the Nikon equivalent; and like you, have found it to be remarkably versatile, far more so than I anticipated. Nice collection here.
