My Nikon 55-300 lens stopped working during the summer – no longer doing automatic focus. I played with it for awhile – using manual focus, but eventually got weary of that and took it to the repair shop. The cost of repair was more than we wanted to pay for an old lens.
Cerwin did some research and I talked to the camera shop tech. We decided to buy a Tamron 16-300. I love it. This picture was taken at 16. Notice the pickup truck outside the window to the right of the door.
I didn’t move from the spot – just changed the zoom to 300.
From the camera shop we went to Costco. While playing with the lens focus and zoom, Cerwin asked me to focus on his hair. Look what I got – from the passenger seat.
A pregnant cow.
After Costco, we took a few back roads on the way to have supper with Roy and Deb. She wanted to see my new lens.
The animals all seemed to be on my right – which was facing west – the wrong way for taking photos with the evening sun.

Traveling down the Buck Hill – RT 272 south of Lancaster.
We were early, so Cerwin took another back road.
Finally got good lighting on an animal
I am going to like this lens.
