That's impressive, when and where did you take that, was it out of your back garden?

The only filter used was a skylight type filter, I was just trying out the new lens before Jeanette reclaimed it and put it away for Christmas :smile:

Well I suppose it was at least nice of Santa to let you try the lens out before the formal delivery on the 25th :smile:
