    Default How Distance Helps

    These stone formations are massive when seen closeup. Only distance and an intervening haze can convert them from towering monuments into an attractive landscape.



    Camera: E-3
    Lens: DZ 14-35 at 14mm
    Shutter speed: 1/320
    Aperture: f8
    WB: 5300K
    Metering mode: ESP
    ISO: 100
    Good shooting,

    Ok, I see part of your method now. You have shown us an interesting and well done group of shots from Monument Valley.

    There is always a tendency to get up close and personal, but my trip to Monument Valley last year taught me the same thing, distance can really add to the shot. Not that there is anything wrong with closeups, but folks need to make sure they get the long shots too. Just look at how much "scope" you captured in this shot, from the very close desert flora to the distant formations and everything in between. I found the same thing at Shiprock last month. Good shooting.
    Cheers, Dave

    Ahhh, well it's as close as you want it to be. Plan a vacation there. Wisconsin can have some cold winters. Maybe that would be a good time to visit the hotter climate to the south?
