Hanging out in Michigan this week has reminded me about one thing. The cold is really no fun. If you want to keep some of your photography skills up, and can’t get out that often, its fun to use a Macro lens to get some extra mileage out of your neighborhood. This year, I ended up getting the Canon EF 100mm 2.8L IS Lens which is just plain awesome. A great add to a photo kit if you don’t have a macro lens.
