60mm Macro Lens on Peebles Island

Here are some shots from this afternoon's muddy stroll on Peebles Island with a Canon EOS 70D and the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens. I was primarily looking for some leftover snow juxtaposed with some of the green which is just beginning to show itself.

Here are a couple of scenes that I managed to find.

But Macro lenses also focus to infinity and are good landscape and portrait lenses as they are generally quite sharp. Especially compared to zoom lenses.

The following photo is of the patch of ice you see in the middle right of the above shot. The pieces of ice were moving slowly and in the time it took to record the five bracketed shots which make up the final image they certainly did change positions. The HDR software, though, manages to adjust for this.
