The Beauty of the Plains
This image was created near sunset at the Lodgepole Gallery and Tipi Village in Browning, MT. The plains have hundreds of species of flowers and grasses, birds and butterflies. I was very fortunate to have a beautiful bouquet of wildflowers to anchor the foreground of this image.
To create this image, I used an 11-16mm wide angle lens. One of the best techniques for using a wide angle lens is to get as close to possible with the foreground subject. This is a classic technique that has been around forever. Don't forget to use a high f stop to help maintain excellent depth of field. In this case, I selected f22.
As you can see from my previous posts, I found the Lodgepole Gallery and Tipi Village to be a truly beautiful location rich with many photographic opportuinities! I can hardly wait to visit again!
