I love playing the game of golf, and here is visual evidence of why. There are few places more beautiful than golf courses. They start with a beautiful piece of property and then pay a bunch of people to make it more beautiful...and keep it that way. BTW, this shot was taken with this old, off brand M42 135mm f/2.8 manual focus lens. When it is stopped to f/4 or smaller, it is just incredibly sharp and contrasty (even on a demanding full frame sensor). I paid $15 for it. Just don't point it into the sun...
