Another Image from the World’s Longest Skating Rink. This time in the day and a lot closer. If you look here you can see it in my night shot of the same location.

    Excellent POV and I like the way the light and shadow offset each other. Well done once again, Geoff.
  • One of the things that I’ve been learning is how to see again. My ultra-wide angle lens requires a fully different approach to POV then my 24mm wide-Angle lens. I’ve been really enjoying the process. I look at these all in one lenses (like the 18-200 VR) and wonder how it affects people’s ability to see.

    That seems to be an age-old question, Geoff. I remember when I read “Of Human Bondage” in high school. The characters were sitting around discussing wether peoples’ view of the things around them affects art or the art changes the way people see things. If you solve it, let me know.

  • Well what I’ve been able to cobble together is that a lens is like a tool and sometimes you need the right tool to do a job. A shot taken with f1.4 can really blur out the background. The old 50mm on a fx sensor camera is pretty much how we see. Long telephoto show us select crops. Some people would only use an ultra-wide angle of scenic look-outs and vistas. It’s learning to see again for me :)

    Great light!!

  • Thanks, I was going to wait for the sunset to get right into the magic hour, but was there way to early. I came across this as I was nearing my adventure for the day.

    Very nice Geoffry, love the lighting here

  • One of the things I saw was how that the light on the wood of the shack looks warm and cozy but the snow and sky contrast the warmth by looking cold and icy.
