I absolutely adore landscapes! I love to hike and have worked for a land trust protecting land. Just this morning, I was interviewed by a land trust in my new home state of Oregon for their annual appeal video. I was eager and honored to share my passion for an evolving land ethic to guide humanity into better harmony with the Earth and my gratitude for organizations that uphold those ethics. This week’s challenge is about wide-angle photography. The truth is, however, I don’t own a wide-angle lens. I do have a Landscape setting on my Canon Rebel T3i, though. It provides a large depth of field and color saturation to enhance greens and blues. I use it extensively when I’m out in the wide open spaces of the USA.
Maybe some day I will invest in additional lenses for my camera. I encourage you to visit Patti’s blog to see some stunning examples of wide-angle photography and learn more!
Hi, Priscilla. I think you get great shots with your Canon Rebel T3i. Truthfully, I traded in my ultra wide lens because I had to pare down for traveling. I think the 18 to 55 does a good job! Maybe when we “land” somewhere, I’ll get another one. We’ll see. Right now I am on a waiting list to get the 70 to 300 mm Fuji lens! The color and light are stunning in your first and third images. I love the light and shadow and texture of the rock in the middle one. Lovely.
Thanks, Patti! I am always so impressed with the travel shots from the core group on Lens-Artists. You all have been to some pretty fabulous places!
Cracker shots, Scilla! LOve the sunset! Cheers from Meg
Thanks much, Meg! 🙂
Loved your canyonlands images especially this week Priscilla. Wonderful examples of going wide.
Thanks, Tina! Your examples are absolutely stunning, as usual.
Beautiful images Priscilla . The Dakota image is so unique.
Thanks! The Badlands are amazing. Absolutely unique!
Fantastic. Especially with lakes the wide angles are so effective.
Thanks! I really love looking at big, beautiful vistas. I’m seeing a lot of great shots with this challenge!
Great landscape shots! I liked your last one best – nice color and reflections.
Thanks! It looks like an abstract painting to me a bit, with brushstrokes in the sky.
Love the lakes and its reflections…
Wowwwww. GREAT photos. VERY well done.
Thanks, John! 🙂
Wonderful ecamples – loved especially your canyons.
