As I'm still sniffling and generally feeling grotty I didn't manage to take anything new today (or yesterday), but I did manage to go to work so I guess I'm probably on the mend.

Anyway, this shot was one I took last month not long after getting my 70-200 f/4, and was more of a test shot than anything else. For those of you not familiar with Blackpool Tower, it's 518 feet nine inches high, opened in 1894, and cost £42,000 to build. It's hardly a massively tall structure by modern standards (the CN tower, for example, is 1815 feet high), but it did give me a good idea as to the capabilities of my new lens.
