The past couple of days in Death Valley have been great! I've been shooting my favorite type of images... wide-angle landscapes with cool foregrounds. Death Valley is an outstanding place to to make these kinds of images. I've been photographing with with my friend Walt Anderson and his wife Carol. Walt is the inventor of the Better Beamer flash extender. Everyone who uses flash with a long lens should have one of these (no, Walt did not bribe me with beer to say that!).
These two photos were taken with an EOS 1DsIII and the 17-40mm lens. If I had to be stuck with one type of lens for the rest of my life, it would definitely be a wide-angle... they are so much fun to shoot!
