There are a good number of local forest reserves around the North Shore.  These are nice to escape into, and for a while, be among native birds, trees and other natural goodness.  So feeling the desire, on Sunday afternoon I went out to visit the Paremoremo Reserve.  It was also a chance to give my Minolta 17-35mm G lens a run. I haven’t had it long, but I’m testing it against the option of carrying several prime lenses instead.

The stream that runs through the reserve shows a lot of variation.  I took a sample of three pics while out on the hike.
