169/196

I have been obsessing over wanting a marco lens for awhile now, probably two years. Just ask anyone I know. After looking around, I narrowed it down to the Tamron 60mm, f/2. Monday evening I have had the opportunity to play around with one and knew it had to be mine. Today I made the purchase and ventured over to my favorite place.

I had a little run in with some barnacles last year and I can tell you it is not a battle any human or living creature is likely to win. They are razor sharp and cut you up like a paper shredder. Here’s a closer look at these little, seemingly harmless, beasts from the sea.

Wonderful photo! Congrats on finally snagging a macro lens. I bought some macro filters to hold me over, but I'm sure they are not the same. :)
