February runoff or rest for the spirit

Earlier this week, we had quite a bit of rain. After the runoff, there were numerous flood warnings, and I produced a slide show of images, but this one kind of struck a chord with me. Flooding does not bring peace or respite for the soul. But yet, a place like the one depicted here can be very mesmerizing as the sound of gurgling water refreshes the spirit.

Photo tip to produce fisheye landscapes

Fine Art Friday

One of the reasons I bought the Canon 5D MkII was to have full use of all my lenses with that full-frame sensor. I have tried most of my lenses on the camera, but I really hadn’t played with the 15mm/2.8 Fisheye Lens. A full frame gives you the widest palette for this lens. With the 15 on the 5D, I headed out to shoot some landscapes.

Here’s a few tips for how to use this lens or one like it.

Leave a comment, if you’d like.

See you on the highway.
