Indian Summer

My old zoom lens was no fun anymore. Low contrasts, chromatic aberrations, a strong barrel effect - not recommendable if you are into architecture photography. Then I attached it to that EOS 650 SLR, that old but almost unused camera I've bought at ebay. My lens felt immediately at home, now they are inseparable.

Ah, yes . . 'horses for courses' as they say . . this is beautifully and effortlessly seen.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks a lot, Ronnie!

Beautiful detail captured throughout! Looks like your zoom lens is back in action again. I love the sepia treatment. The danedelions and puffballs stand out nicely in this composition.

@Steven: Thanks, Steven! The treatment came out of the box: For some unknown reason I have to scan the negatives in colour mode (my other software won't read the same file when scanned in grayscale mode), that's why. However, I like the effect.
