Looking up

Walking through the woods is a completely different experience depending on which lens you bring. With a macro lens, you walk like a beagle with your nose to the ground. You look for color and texture in the hidden places of the forest: a berry peeking out from the ground cover or a spider spinning a web. A macro lens makes you walk slowly and look closely. A wide angle lens makes you look up, spin in circles, and then lie flat on your back. You look for scale and form. Today it was these very tall, very straight trees and how they clumped together that got my attention.
