24-70: The arrival of Spring

A few shots today taken from various locations around Rotherham, all using the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD. One thing’s apparent using this lens: the aperture range of F/2.8 – F/22 and the combination of focal lengths makes for a versatile package indeed. The close focus distance of this lens can yield some very pleasing results for small subjects, as long as you can get close enough to your subject, and it’s possible to get some very different results by changing the viewing angle by just a couple of feet with different settings (see the last three shots in particular).

I’m always happy at this time of year. Just another couple of weeks, and the woods should burst into colour as the bluebells start to appear. It’s the highlight of an English spring.
