Arches National Park

2011.08.31
Day Nineteen. Stopped over in Arches National Park for a hike and a couple of free climbs. I apparently managed to unlearn most of what I thought I had learned about focusing the wide angle lens ... and managed to forget that depth of field still aplies even when you're not shooting macro. Nobody's interested in how sharp the grass in front of you is if the arch above it is out of bloody focus! I also again struggled with the contrast between the subjects and the sky, but that's nothing new and has very nearly been discussed to death. There was more than once that I wished I had a wider angle lens, but I really think I'm starting to get in line with the "zoom with your feet, not your lens" philosophy. It's really more fun that way anyways :)
