I have been wanting to capture this car for a number of years. It is far off in the distance in a farmers field and I always pass by now observing it in various light and wonder what its story is but it has been clearly put out to pasture like an old horse.

My wife told me about it and I had never noticed it. Then I discovered that I did not own a lens that had the reach to take this (no trespassing was posted everywhere) as I was never into capturing “birds on a twig” pictures. It takes amazing knowledge and patience to make pictures of birds that are not the boring “bird on a twig” photos taken by most photographers and they are not worth taking. However, I suddenly realized I would be able to create non fur & feather images that were impossible to take without an extreme telephoto.

This was captured with the Panasonic G9 and a Panasonic Leica 200mm f/2.8 lens (400mm equivalent on full frame camera). This is stunning lens is the absolutely most amazing telephoto I have shot with and is extremely sharp across the frame even wide open. It also has a beautiful rendering in the out of focus areas where zooms fall flat on their face.
