My wife doesn’t understand….. but that’s not unusual. I have a propensity to wake up early, even on the weekends, when the rest of the world is sleeping. Now I’m not talking middle of the night early, usually 5:30- 6:00 am and after 7 hours of sleep I’m ready to go.
On this particular morning I had a 8:10 tee time for a round of golf and I again got up at 6:00 realizing this scene was on my route to the course and the sunrise might just coincide with my arrival. I’ve seen this shot many times before and was really excited to use my Siggy for an expansive view. After looking at this shot several times I’m not sure if I like it taken with this perspective. I mean this lens (Sigma 10-20) is so wide even on my cropped Canon, everything looks so small. I don’t know, I do love the wideness but I guess I just have to get used to the fact that I have to get much closer to the scene or the main subject to have any visual impact. I guess the learning curve is a little steeper than I thought.
BTW, after showing my wife my early morning shots I think she understands why I get up early…….. sometimes.
