Jetty at sunset

I love this calm, tranquil sunset shot of a jetty on Lake Windermere. 

This was taken on my Canon 5D with 24-105mm lens, my first professional photography kit.

The 5D has been sadly replaced by a 6D, which I love using, and the 24-105 lens is still my go to day to day lens though, which is great considering I bought it in 2007.  The 5D is my spare.

This shot proves a very important point though. My 5D is now considered old technology, and my 6D is packed full of features (most of which I do not use but Scott Kelby you are so wrong about the Lightroom Map Module which I love now I have built in GPS in my 6D!), but does all this new fancy stuff give you better pictures?


If you have a great shot you have a great shot.

Doesn’t matter if it was taken with a Hasselblad, Leica, Canon, Nikon, Kodak or hole in a biscuit barrel. Or a phone.

A great shot is a great shot. 

And I still love my shot of the Lake Windermere jetty all these years after taking it on my old 5D.
