Every day late afternoon I go for another six kilometre walk, mainly along the seashore. This time I had the Panasonic Leica 100-400mm f/4.0-6.3 mounted on my GX8. Quite heavy to carry around, but also rewarding.

I shot this image hand-held at 400mm focal length, 1/320 shutter speed. It seems pretty sharp to my eye. The camera was on autofocus. The subject is merely some weeds gone to seed, just up from the high tide mark. I enjoy looking at this picture. The backlighting from the late afternoon sun gives those weeds a wonderful radiance, as if on fire. The out of focus background lends a certain mysterious character to the scene. A great lens, and the shot is definitely a keeper.

For me, it is an example of the Sublime shining through the mundane.
