Wide Angle at Discovery Park

Discovery Park Lighthouse: Panasonic GF-1, Panasonic 7-14mm f/4

Being a landscape photographer, I love wide angle perspectives.  Yesterday evening, my friend, Mike, and I drove to Discovery Park and hiked down to the beach.  The light wasn’t the best, but the clouds were beautiful.  I took several shots at 14mm and the above is my favorite.  I like the expansive, almost 3-D feeling the image portrays, both with the curved foreground driftwood and the sweeping overhead clouds.  I hope you enjoy the shot.

    Very nice, Dr. Thapa! Brings back memories of the days I served with the US Army Reserves at Fort Lawton, there. What a BEATIFUL view from Discovery Park!!!

    I noticed the cloud formation while riding my bike home last eve–good to see them again in your photo.

    Must be a name for that type of formation? Much different than our usual clouds.

    Great image! I love the clarity in the entire depth of field. I think that cloud formation is pretty close to being called a “mackerel sky” (as in fish scales) and that stormy weather is on its way.

    Great shot. Very creative to use the wide angle which lends an interesting perspective.
