For me, wide angle usually means vistas. Long reaching views. But I thought I would reign it in a little with this challenge.
I shoot with a Nikon 1 camera that has a really cropped view with a standard lens. So I have a “wide angle” lens for my mirrorless camera that let’s me shoot a much wider view. My camera also has some built in features that let you take different kinds of photos. I used the HDR feature for this photo. It blended the different exposures nicely.
I hike in Corrales quite often as it is very pretty there along the bosque and I usually don’t run into a lot of people. I’m one of those folks that happiest if I hike all day and don’t run into a soul. I like to experience nature all by myself.
Many times I have driven through Corrales and seen a sign about an historical church down a side road. I have never taken the time to visit this church. I figured a visit was in order with this week’s challenge. I was not disappointed. The church was built in 1868 and has the typical New Mexico church look.
For Scarlett, wide angle meant “mom! get me doing something really cool!” 🙂 So she ran up this old deadfall and posed nicely for this week’s photo challenge.
