There is no debating the capabilities of a single prime 50mm lens with an aperture of 1.4. Colour clarity is stunning focus is sharp and you can control the depth of field to an amazing level.

I tend to the leave the 50mm on my camera simply as it is the lightest lens I own. Taking photos of a busy coastline takes care with the zoom being a matter of walking backward and forward. Walking backward along a rocky decline, from experience is not recommended.

The sun managed to come on out after a full day of rain. The rain storm could be seen making its way across the bay towards Donegal.

All photos were shot with a 50mm lens in Portstewart. A few additional photos can be found on flickr and
