The grand staircases leading to the main quiet study area are flanked on one side by beautiful, tall stained-glass windows and on the other by intricately carved rock railings and mammoth columns. The study area itself is a sight to behold. The overhanging light fixtures, the stained-glass windows, and the woodworking are simply stunning. It feels like one has stepped into a library not at the University of Washington but at Hogworts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Such a venue was the ideal place to try out the redonkulously ultra wide angle Sigma lens. Mounted on a Pentax K-5 camera, the 8-16mm lens has a 12-24mm equivalent field of view. That’s pretty incredible for a non-fisheye lens. I hope you enjoy the shots. I certainly had a blast looking through that lens!
