Tree, light, lines, sky

The light look promising, so I was off to find a place with a nice northern exposure, and hoped the clouds would be good. I strolled along a closed path going east from the Glenmore Sailing School. This tree happened pretty quickly, and I got it coming and going, trying to get it looking nice in front of the clouds.

I was thinking about composition here, but I'm not sure how well anything around the reservoir is working with the new lens. It's a big empty space already, and the wide angle just makes it look bigger and emptier. There's a bit of wind sculpting happening, and some tracks made by brave people, but it isn't interesting in of itself. At least I wasn't able to make it interesting.

Add some trees, some leading lines pointing to dramatic skies, and things change. I think. What do you think?

  1. One of the things I really enjoy about wide angle lenses is that they collapse more than the eye can normally focus on into a format where focus is possible. The light in the 1st photo is lovely and so is the sky on the third. To my eye, the tree on the 1st photo could have been placed a little to the right, but hey that's just me. Cheers, Sean
