Wide FX again!

Purple Moor Grass and Golden SunIt was a pleasure after too long, back to FX and the accompanying anti-crop feeling. Having used the DX format for years I still was not really happy with the cropping, on wide-angle shots that is. For telephoto sure it works a treat, but for anything a bit wide I felt ‘forced’ to use too short a lens with trees toppling over, and perspective too extreme in situation I did not want that. On the beautiful ‘cold gold morning’ I was first using my newly acquired D700 and felt freed again. It just feels better.

I might even go as far as that I fell a bit in love with this picture. I just looked at it with a big smile on my face. Everything seems to fit, the warm sun surrounded by the golden hue, the fog obscuring the horizon adding some mystique, and the crispness of the Purple Moor Grass (Molinia caerulea, Pijpenstro) in the front. They all came together in a good feeling of the morning. Maybe what could be added is a bit of the underwater world… Well, we always have something to wish for don’t we.
