Fifty and Bored?

Not 50 years, but 50 millimeters of focal length.

The trouble I mean to cause today is this:

some authorities have suggested using a wide angle zoom
and a telephoto zoom, like the 14-24 and 70-200, leaving
the area between them unused, because that 'normal' range
is boring.

I am going to be candid and admit that I like 50.
Just by chance, this image was shot at 50 mm (24-70 zoom),
and I like it. In fact, I zoomed around, had a 14-24, 70-200
and 500 with me, but liked this composition best.

Best photo ever taken of Moraine Lake? No. But, I like it.

Go fifty!

I did recently turn 50, so maybe there's some synergy.
(Still as energetic and damn good looking as ever!)
