New toy

It's taken me a good few years to discover ebay but I've dived in and got a great bargain on a wonderful lens. A Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens which I've been wanting for a very long time. It's early days and I'm just playing at the moment, but it's a lot of fun! Indeed, while taking photos of the moon can't exactly be considered macro, it does have a lovely crisp focus and allows for a huge range of subjects.

Star anise

Click for much much larger star anise photos. Lots more to come when I get to grips with it

The upper of your two photos isn't showing. Is it supposed to be the one of the anise? Glad the lens arrived...
