Taking in a Wider View - Woodland Stonecrop - Not So Wide
Our eyes have lenses that let us see the world at a certain angle of view. We can't zoom in or out like we can with a camera. My go-to lens for wide-angle closeup work is Canon's 10-22 mm zoom lens. This lens lets me get an image like I shared yesterday, which put this small clump of Sedum ternatum in context- it was growing out of the root ball of a tree. When I zoom the lens to 22 millimeters, I can focus more closely on the plant itself, getting the entire plant in focus, which is very difficult to do with traditional macro lenses.
