In November 2015, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be an ambassador for Pentax/Ricoh Imaging for six months as part of a competition. As part of it, I was sent an HD PENTAX-DA 35mm F2.8 Macro Limited lens, to pair with my K3II.

This is the first post in a series of six that will share the images I captured for them. See more on the series page.

Original series description

This set of shots were taken around my old workplace in Chelmsford, in and around the Chelmer Valley Local Nature Reserve. It's a slightly eclectic mix but was my first time out with the new lens and I was getting used to what it could do - playing with a mix of distances and subjects.
