Wide angle winter

Yesterday when I woke up the sun was shining from a blue sky so I decided to postpone the planned trip to the climbing gym and instead take a long walk with my Nikon D40 and Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 lens.

I’ve had the Sigma lens since midsummer last year and even though I’ve used it quite a bit I still find the framing to be difficult with such a wide angle lens. I guess it just takes a while to get used to, or maybe you need to be a better photographer to use it right, I don’t know.

Anyway, I got some decent photos and a lovely walk in the spring warm sun. The Sigma lens seems to give some artefacts when shooting straight into the sun. I guess I shouldn’t be doing that but it’s hard not to when I haven’t seen the sun for months!

The photo I’m the most happy with I didn’t take with the Nikon though but with the Canon S90 using the macro mode. I think this will be my new desktop wallpaper after the Uppsala by night photo I’ve used for a while.
