Idlewild Fountain
I just bought a Sigma 10-20mm, f/3.5, wide angle zoom to go with my Sigma DSLR bodies. I took the lens for a "test drive" last Wednesday morning and shot this photo at Idlewild Park in my hometown of Easton, Maryland, USA. The lens was fast-focusing, quiet, and super sharp.

Very nice Roger. I like this wide-angle perspective. It lets you offer something nice in the foreground like the flowers shown here, as well as keep that wide angle context such as the fountain and church in the background. I look forward to seeing what else you can do. Maybe we need to make another trip to downtown DC to the National Cathedral or to the Mall with all of the monuments and give that lens a real workout!

Thanks, Walt.  I'm sure that I would enjoy another TPN photo shoot with you in DC or elsewhere.  I'm also sure that I want to wait until we have much cooler weather!  I plan to give the lens a good workout next month on a vacation trip to South Africa.  I've already made arrangements for me and my wife to meet with Bettie Coetzee-Lambrecht when we're in Cape Town.  She's going to show us a few of the sights.

Yes, definitely another photo safari on a weekend when the weather is more comfortable. Can't wait to see what you return with from South Africa. Give Bettie a hard time and tell her we miss her here on TPN.

Count me in for the next DC photo outing! And that's terrific Roger that you are continuing the tradition of TPN gatherings on another continent! Can't wait to see your shots from Table Mountain in Capetown, you will not need a wide angle lens to capture the splendor there!
