The view from the Tate Modern

The view across the Thames from the Tate Modern is pretty nice on a beautiful summer day.

It seemed like a great occasion to try out my new Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR lens. It’s the full-frame equivalent to the lens I used faithfully everywhere on my old camera. The shot above is shot at 70mm which could be considered pretty close to normal.

The photo below is the shot of the dome of Saint Paul’s Cathedral at 300mm. That’s a pretty impressive zoom.

It wasn’t until later when I was looking at my shots that I realized exactly how awesome the combination is. From even that far away, I could clearly make out people on the roof of Saint Paul’s cathedral. This is the same photo as the one above, just cropped at 100%.

Meanwhile, visitors to the museum were greeted by a giant human torso.
