A red sunflower shot at the community garden here in Lake California. There are a lot of fires in northern California right now so the sky is actually hazy gray. This photo was taken with the Tamron 70-300mm f4-5.6 vc lens. I am enjoying the reach of this longer lens; the picture quality is "good enough" for me. The lens seems well-built, Tamron offers a 6 year warranty and with rebate the cost was only $350.00.
