New Lens!!

Hi all @ ISAB.
Been out today along the Canal,trying out my new lens(Canon 55-250mm IS f4)
I have to say,that I am impressed with it,with the pics I have taken today.
Did try some flight shots,and panning shots,but all came out blurry.
Something to work on there!! lol
Anyway,here are the pics I took,some I have put on main page.
Hope you like them.

Just as I am leaving the canal,feeling very pleased with myself,& my new lens, a passerby stopped me and asked me if I got a picture of the KINGFISHER,she & her husband had just seen down by the bridge! The same bridge where I had taken the Barge picture!!!…..Always a downside to put you back in ya place!! lol
