Spring seems to be just about the only time of year I ever use a long lens. The compressed perspective on the emerging color of the trees is fascinating. I've been watching and studying this ever since I first got a 200mm lens for my Nikons back in 1974. For, I think, the fourth year now I'm doing these with the remarkably competent and reasonably priced Lumix 45-200 varifocal (roughly equivalent to 90-400 for FX/135 format).
