Prime Lens for my A6000

Bought a Sigma 30 mm f/1.4 lens for my Sony alpha A6000 mirrorless DSLR on Thursday and began learning how to use my first ever prime lens on Friday afternoon in the back yard. This photo was taken with the lens fully open looking almost straight up at the last full rose in our lovely old arbour. Very pleased with the shallow depth of field producing the blurred background, but I’ve never owned a 1.4 lens before so there’s a learning curve involved. The Sigma 1.4 has a very high rating for sharpness and will do a lovely job on portraits.

George Lake, Killarney, Ontario

Discovered Killarney Provincial Park in 1979. We were there many times, most recently this July.

Photos: Evening July 23 from high rock near Groundhog campsites. The other two were shot this morning just after dawn from the jumping rock near Woodchuck campsites.
