Excellent shot, Tom.
Richard, what are the chimneys for?
They're what's left of the old brickworks at Stewartby. I'm told that 50 years ago and more, there were dozens of chimneys in this area - these are all that remain. The area is being "re-forested" despite lots of new housing.

The images from this lens continue to impress. I am inventing ways to justify it's purchase. I said I wouldn't spend a thousand on a lens, but I got damn close with the 16. Maybe a 90 and some tubes instead of the 60.
@Tim Williams If you don't mind used gear, the 90mm can be had for around $700 or less on FredMiranda's for sale section. I picked up one for $675 which included the shipping and PayPal fee. Also, from what my dad tells me, the 90mm does very well with the extension tubes.
Thanks, Bobby. I have only bought one piece of gear that was new (D300) when they were 1800.00. Now I can buy them all day for 150.00. I still shoot that thing and it does a good job so I'm waiting another year before I do a Fuji upgrade from my XT1. Until then I will do as the saying goes " Invest in Lens ". Lens are personal, they don't have to be pretty, they just have to treat me right.. I never part with one that works for me.
