This scene is one of the many reasons the Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens is part of my standard landscape kit. With the mentioned goal remaining a high priority, this was a jump out of the car, sit, shoot, and jump back in the car scenario. With no time for tripod setup, the Canon EOS R5 and RF 100-500 combination IS was counted on to make the shot sharp, and it did.
When driving by a scene that calls for a photo, I often regret not heeding that call.
The captured image is usually worth far more than the very little time and effort the stop typically requires.
This was one of the latter cases.
Within three minutes of stopping, we were back on the road.
