Waikanae Beach, 2006
Waikanae Beach, 2006

Funny how many of my lost & found images are from trying out gear - often I'll get something new, go a bit mad with it testing things, and then move on to using it for work without ever really giving much attention to the test shots.  But some of them I really like, now that I do look!

This one is from Waikanae Beach in New Zealand, just north of Wellington, when I first got my hands on the Canon 85L f/1.2 in 2006.  I also had a 1Ds Mark II on loan from Canon at the time (while my 1D Mk II was in being serviced), so I was testing both of them at the same time really - and in this case, seeing how well they could track a small moving object...
