Island Life

I took off the rear element of the 150mm f5.6 effectively turning it into a 450mm f16 soft-focus lens, giving the picture a nice pictorial soft look. Then waited for the fog to creep in so I can hide the shoreline across and create this isolated feel. And two ducks

    I have a "5 ducks" one, very similar, but unfortunately, it's digital. ^_-

    @lomodesbro Some scenes just scream for symmetry! But funny enough, on this particular occasion I didn't have much choice. More upwards and I'll see parts of the shore on the other side of the lake, more down and I'll see some buildings in the foreground, left and right and I'll catch a chimney. So, here we are

    @troch Thanks! This is part of the view from my place in Zurich, so I have really high expectations of this shot. Everyone who is visiting me looks over the lake and snaps a picture, so I had to have a special one for myself
