Focus is important in more ways than one. I was in two minds as to go try to get some shots of birds with my long lens (to prove I can do it 'in the field') or go take some photos. In the end I fell between two stools and failed in both aims. There are some marsh pools I'd like to see the sunset reflected in, but an uninspiring sunset and barbed wire made it difficult. The barbed wire can be surmounted. The sun is beyond my control. The light got interesting for a while and I almost made something of it. Then it went uniform and beat me again.
