I know…the title is brutal, and I’m not even sure if this is a pine or spruce tree. Oh well, a bad pun never hurt anybody 🙂 This shot is a bit of a departure from the norm for me…it’s not HDR and it was not shot with my super wide angle lens. For a portion of my walk around the McLean Creek Pond last weekend I slapped my 50mm f/1.4 on my camera to change my perspective a bit. The 50mm is a great lens and I love playing around with the super shallow depth of field it affords. I’m going to have to make a point to use this lens more often because every time I come home after shooting with it, I’m amazed with the results.
