One of the problems with a 300mm lens is that you really need to be about four miles away from whatever it is you want a picture of. I lost count of the number of times I tried to get a picture of this tower crane - presumably used for lifting boats in and out of the water - only to find repeatedly that I was too close to get it all in the frame. Finally I managed it, and from within the grid square too!
