Here are a few more from last weeks visit to Assateague Island. I was playing around with different settings and wanted to see how the new 70-300mm L lens did in these situations.
This one… doesnt seem to be as sharp as it should… f/11, ISO 100 @ 1/640 sec, 300mm. -1 EV
But the depth of colors reminded me of the scene in "Gone With The Wind" in which Atlanta was burning in the distance.

Seems a bit sharper. Same settings as above, but with +1 EV. Pier posts are in foreground. Cropping the posts out seems to reduce the interest in the picture and cuts out some of the continuing reflections from the sun which I like. Any thoughts?

f/4, ISO 100 @ 1/100sec, 70mm. Not sure if I got the colors right here...
