Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #165 – Going Wide

For this challenge our host Patti has asked us to Go Wide for some wide angle shots. This challenge got me thinking about some of the huge magnificent natural wonders I have photographed in my travels. I don’t have a wide angle lens so for most of these images I had to move around until I could find the right spot to capture as much as I could of the subject.

It’s hard to imagine the size of Niagara Falls until you’ve seen it in person. In the image above I tried to capture all of the Niagara Falls Canada. It’s so wide I had to try several different view points before I could fit it all in the camera frame. The image below shows the American Falls on the left and the Canadian Falls on the right. I wasn’t able to get all of the American Falls in the shot.

These next few images are from various trips we have made. Trying to get these huge formations into the frame was quite a challenge! In some cases I backed up as far as I could go to get the picture I wanted.

The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
Arches National Park, Utah – The people standing near the bottom of the photo give you an idea of the size of the arches
Isle of Skye, Scotland – the cars on the road give you an idea of how big the area is
Monument Valley, Utah and Arizona
Grand Canyon North Rim, Arizona

Many thanks to Patti for challenging us with Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #165: Going Wide
