Banks of the Dee

Collected new 55-200mm lens today, so stopped off at Duthie Park to take some snaps and see what's what. I noticed that lens now takes 52mm filters - hmm, the recently eBayed ND filters are 58mm (which fits the original lens). All this is new to me. Camera shake at the 200mm setting is very noticeable. I didn't bother posting photos taken of gulls on the other side of the Dee, as they were too blurred. Tripod or beanbag definitely required for that.

Cracking photos.

Thank you, sir. The light wasn't doing much, so it was a definite test run. Less light seems to come in through the zoom lens, so I'm trying to find the settings that work best for the conditions.

Lots of photos taken of the same view at different settings, and then checking them when I get back to flat.
