New toy! Playing around with my new wide angle lens

Ok, so I’ve been waaaayy too busy with work to even think about boat projects to post here, but…I do have a new techie toy (yay!). I recently acquired a wide angle lens for my Canon SLR. I decided to get the Canon EF-S 10-22mm (I have a crop sensor camera) to broaden my viewable area through the lens. Besides the kit lens that came with the camera (an 18-55mm) and a zoom lens (70-300mm) that I use for most wildlife shots, I wanted a closer lens to capture the vast beach landscapes as well as interiors.

I can’t say I’ve been anywhere this week to really give this lens a real test, but I did play around with it some and enjoyed a few of the resulting shots. I’m hoping this lens will really become my “landscape/sunset/beach” lens…I can’t wait to really test it out. Anyway, here are a few of the initial shots from the weekend.
