We finally got time rain in Spokane, Wash. this morning after about a month and a half of dry, hot and smoky weather.
A little gift after the storm tonight.
My lilacs are pretty happy with the drenching they are getting from all of the storms passing through this season.
Here’s a before and after of a fast moving storm that came through Spokane, Wash. tonight.

A storm came in from the north this afternoon. I was able to get out of the rain right before the deluge. We now have high winds, thunder and large raindrops.
I purchased a used Canon 300 f/4L, the non-IS version, which was manufactured in the early to mid 1990s. I read some nice reviews and comments on different websites about this particular lens, which was discontinued in 1997, when Canon released an IS version of the lens.
Supposedly, the non-IS version beats out the IS version in focus speed and sharpness according to some reviews and comments on different websites. But, I don’t have an IS version of the lens to compare it to. But, I know what the non-IS version can do on its own.
I took some test shots around town. The images are sharp, even wide open at f/4. Also, focus is quick and snappy. For me, mobility is very important. So, the fact that it is light weight is a huge plus. So far, I am happy with this lens.
