I went out this morning to catch the sunrise, and look for some critters. I had lousy luck shooting animals, but the sunrise was great. It was not particularly colorful, just a clean golden yellow sunrise in a pale blue sky. But where it met the lingering fog, it made magic. I found a couple nice views along one of my favorite stretches of road, and used three very different lenses and focal lengths, to capture the magic. When I first cleared the trees and saw the sun coming up, this is the scene that stopped me. I first shot it with the lens on my em5ii at the time: the Oly 17/1.8. Unable to change my viewpoint without alot of effort, I grabbed the Olympus 40-150/2.8, and took a couple more considered shots of the vista, at different focal lengths. here at 40mm: then at 95mm: And finally, I shot it at a full 150mm, and got my favorite frame from this spot: Not a quarter mile down the road, this view jumped out at me, and I ended up liking this framing best. I typically avoid man made objects in my nature landscapes, but for some reason this composition really struck me as nice. This one is at 40mm with the 40-150/2.8. Just 5 minutes later, the fog was almost clear. I was perhaps a mile down the road, when I spotted a nice patch of lingering fog, down an overgrown railroad access trail. I pulled down into it, and managed this shot with the ZD7-14/4 four thirds lens, at 7mm. It's interesting to think about focal length in landscape. As much as we tend to have wide angle pushed as the go to, I find I use telephoto almost as much. In particular, when I have little control over viewpoint, I prefer telephoto, to give some modicum of control. Conversely, if it's easy to walk around a subject and get the exact angle I want, I may prefer a wide or ultra wide angle. I also had the 12-40mm with me, but never used it, or wanted it's range. If my 17mm was weather sealed, I would consider selling the 12-40.
