    Thought I was have a p**s about while testing my new tripod out on a Windy Newcastle Quayside.

    8 second Exposure while very slowly zooming from 10-20 on the Wigma (if the 50-500 can be the bigma then surely the 10-20 can be the wigma :D )

    I think it looks better in bigger click for that :)

    A nice sturdy tripod and a steady hand is key to that.


    Wigma Bigma...
    Sigma make a zoom lens which is 50-500mm and quite large so it was nicknamed the bigma I was playing on that as the Sigma 10-20 is one of the widest lenses you can buy hence Wigma :D

    Splendid. Very different but still instantly recognisable.
