I decided 2013 should be a new adventure in photography for me. Always looking to broaden my skills, I am taking on landscape and long exposure photography this year.
I bought an EF 17-40mm f/4 L lens a few weeks ago, but came down with the flu and was able to try it out until today. I am very pleased with the sharpness and color this lens yields, but I am certainly on a learning curve. This photo, taken in Marblehead, MA, is a first attempt and a good starting point for me into my landscape work.
I am so used to working without a tripod and living in the world of shallow depth of field with my action and nature photography, but look forward to learning more about landscapes.
