California Live Oak Trees – Project 365

Decided to do some testing today with my Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 in regard to landscape photography. As mention before a number of reviews suggested that this macro lens is also good for landscapes. I pay a visit the foothills outside Antioch, along Deer Valley Road, to capture some California Oak trees. I purposely shoot wide open to get a feel for the DOF performance with this long Prime lens. In a few days I will go back and take some more photos, this time using a more appropriate aperture setting for landscapes, such as F/11.
