Late one spring afternoon I was scouting the bucolic farm country of rural Sonoma County. From Whitaker Bluff under scuttling clouds I photographed this cockeyed fisheye view of the bend in Siempre Creek and the curvature at the horizon. It’s unusual to shoot a landscape where the distortion is so obvious—because of the fisheye lens, and because I positioned the camera sideways at an angle—but I think in this case it works.
Speaking of landscapes, my new book Creative Landscapes: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques is now shipping from Amazon (although the official publication date of the book is still several weeks off). If you pick up a copy, please let me know what you think.
