Another test for the new Tamron 150-600 mm on the 6D.
Finally had a weekend that wasn’t dreary so got down to Port Stanley, Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Erie (though I think Lake Huron is even nicer). Some scenes that show how nice summer can be in Ontario!
These are all real-world, everyday basic shooting handheld images all at F8 (will next try some more exacting tests with the tripod). Light post processing in Lightroom 4.3 Click any for larger image.
Looks like fun! 375 mm at ISO 400, 1/2000 of a second:
Easy day to navigate in – though Port Stanley is known for some pretty strong currents. 600 mm at ISO 400, 1/2000 / second:
That’s NOT 9.4 km, please and thank you! 600 mm at ISO 400, 1/1250 / second (cropped – I am happy with the sharpness):
Port Stanley would be nice without some of the industrial facilities near the shore, but it makes for an interesting subject. 273 mm at ISO 800, 1/3200 second
Port Stanley’s has a working lifting bridge! Got in the spot I wanted and got this sequence (all between 300 – 350 mm, and 1000 – 2000th of a second):
the Kettle Creek serves as the channel between the Harbour and the lake:
Looks like the was a backlog of boaters raring to get out on the lake!
there are a number of quaint Bed and Breakfasts, Restaurants, and Bars along the channel, many with a view.
Looks like everyone one is through:
and back down, ready for traffic:
Happy with the lens so far!
