Long Dreams

I vacillate between using only one normal prime lens, or using a long zoom lens.  When I took the above pictures I had gone for a walk with the Canon 70D and the 55 – 250 mm lens.  As is usually the case when I’m using that lens, I shoot mostly at the 250 mm end of the zoom, and then crop a lot when I get it up on my monitor.  While looking at the cropped images I always start dreaming about a longer lens.  This only lasts until I think about the cost and the weight.  A long lens is hardly worth it just to get a few more pictures for my blog, and I don’t need it for my internal photography; but, maybe one of these days I’ll change my mind.
