With the brutal cold, Adalay, Lawrence of Berkley, and I took cover in the Great Lakes Maritime Center. After warming up with some coffee, Larry and I braved the cold and winds for a few minutes to get some shots of the ships in lay-up across the river. This was the first chance I had to really try Adalays' new toy -- the Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3. It's certainly not the 70-200VRII quality in any way, but for a cheap, small, light lens it doesn't seem too bad. We'll have to give it some more trails, but so far so good.
