It’s time for another Photo of the Week and this time I’m going to show one reason why it’s a good idea to always use a lens hood on your lens for extra protection…

This was shot with a wide angle, Tokina 12-24mm, a really great lens for the price, I think.

And yes, the cow licked my lens hood. It wouldn’t have been the end of the world had it licked the front of my lens since I usually carry my lenses with a Neutral Clear filter installed, but it’s a lot easier to wipe off the lens hood than the glass :)

ISO 1600, f/4, 1/350, 12mm

Here’s another cow shot, also with the Tokina 12-24mm wide angle, so I was really close to the cows here.

ISO 2200, f/4, 1/250, 12mm

Both photos shot using:
