JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

A new lens...

My good old faithful Canon 18-200mm lens finally breathed its last breath.  It's been dropped one too many times unfortunately, and that's another story!  I've been doing my research and finally decided on the new Tamron 16-300mm lens.  It will be a good walk-around lens for my Canon 7D.  It arrived in the mail yesterday and I quickly took it outside to see what it could do.  I wasn't disappointed and I know I'm going to love it.  I will give it a good work out this coming weekend in Cairns.

Here is a photo taken at the widest angle - 16mm.

This one taken at 300mm

And this one taken close-up
