Garret Hostel Lane Cambridge

I've recently purchased a new camera lens - well that's not strictly true. I've had the lens for a while now - a second-hand purchase from a friend of mine. A Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM to give it its full name. At the time I didn't know it was one of the "L series lens (Canons heavyweight pro lens series), but upon opening the packing and feeling its weight it so became obvious this was something a little bit special.

I decided to take it into Cambridge for a morning shoot to see how it compared to my regular Sigma 18-200 stalwart. It was in a word, superb. Having less glass in the lens seemed to help focus and there was little or no distortion at any focus level. The rather short focus range (compared to my normal lens) took a while to get used to but in many ways it made you work more carefully and think more about the shot and positioning. 

Anyway, the shot. Taken on the same passageway which splits Trinity College as an early blog entry "Walk To Work" this weeks image was blessed by some amazing, dreamlike rays of sunlight which fought their way through the surrounding trees to bathe the tarmac and metal rails in beams of light.
