Banner Marsh

Yesterday, my boyfriend, Scott and I, took our dog Drake to Banner Marsh in Banner, IL.  My boyfriend is a big duck hunter, so he wanted to go out and check the water levels before hunting season starts at the end of the month.  I wanted to go out because I rented the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC from http://www.lensrentals.com and I wanted to try it out.  It was kind of cold out, about 60 degrees, but it ended up being a perfect evening.  There was no wind so the 60 degrees was perfect.  There was hardly anyone there, just a few people fishing, so it was so quiet and peaceful.  The sun started to set so we began to head back to the truck.  There hadn't been a cloud in the sky, so I didn't expect a great sunset.  As the sun was setting, clouds were forming and it ended up being beautiful!  It was an absolutely perfect ending to a great evening!  I really enjoyed the lens, it seemed to take nice photos and I like that it has image stabilization, the Canon counterpart does not.  I am looking at buying the Canon 6D in December and I will need to buy a new normal range lens to go with it.  I think this will be the one I will go with rather than the Canon 24-70 that comes in the kit.  Banner Sunset
