Today, I got down to the beach to try out my new lens.

It's a pleasure to use: camera and lens are quite light to hold and comfortable.

Data: F16, 12 mm (wide angle), ISO 1000 and shutter speed 1/1000 of a second.

I wanted to post this photo since the volleyball nets are still up. I've posted other shots without the nets, and folks always ask what they are. So now you can see.

Well, I have a new lens. Olympus Pro 12--45mm. Here's a sample that I took today:

This is an example of what a wide-angle view from this lens looks like:

And this is an iPhone photo showing the new lens on the camera:

I hope to get an entry in next month's contest using this lens!

Off Topic: AndyS texted me about his situation: He's in a Ft. Worth hospital.

Yesterday, while he was home, his heart started beating very rapidly with a simultaneous drop in his blood pressure.
He realized he had to take care of this so he drove to the nearest hospital where he was seen in the ER.
The MD's there thought it would be best for him to be treated at a more advanced hospital, so he was transferred to one in Ft. Worth.
He was admitted there last night where he was examined.
His EKG was "perfect" according to an MD, but the blood work was concerning.
It was thought that he might have had a heart attack, but they weren't sure.

This morning, the Floor Doctor says all looks OK, but he has to get signed off by the cardiologist. Andy fully expects to be discharged home this afternoon.

He told me to go ahead and let all of you know what's going on.
I am more than relieved!

***Major Edit*** See my post #30 for the details
