    Another dull flat day yesterday but as I am off now until Jan I was determined to get out and grab some photos.

    I took the XT2 with just the 55-200mm - this lens is superb and delivers really good photos yet appears to be praised very little by the wider Fuji community, probably overshadowed by the 50-140 that is brilliant but at least twice the price.

    These are the images I captured yesterday that to me in many cases depict the move into the cold, dull winter months.

    Excellent set. The 55-200 is a superb lens.

    Thanks Bobby, it certainly delivers great IQ and is fast on the XT2.

    Nothing cold and dull about these, Ian. I love getting out in the winter months. Lots of interesting things to see if one is inclined to look.

    How right you are Tony, I don't believe in being a "fine weather photographer", the Fuji's handle poor weather very well and as such can be exposed to bad weather with more confidence.

    Thanks Britanica, it is a time of year that I love photographically and it allows me to challenge my photography and learn more about the capability of my equipment.
