Box Canyon

Box Canyon and Ouray

Today two things got me excited… first, a return of winter with cold temps and snow outside! Woohoo! Secondly, I got to try out my new Olympus Zuiko 7-14mm ultra wideangle lens. This thing is an awesome hunk of glass, with a big bulbous front element and a huge angle of view. I shot this photo above from the bridge over Box Canyon, and you can see all the way from the depths of the canyon, to Ouray and the mountains above town. Pretty sweet. It’s a heavy lens, and I imagine I’ll probably use it less than 25% of the time, but it will be a nice option to have for really big landscape scenes with big foreground.

  1. Jack,

    Was this taken in the ice climbing area? Surely, surely not! I know this winter has been bad, but come on…where’s the ice? Sweet lens, isn’t it? Want to buy me one?!

  2. So, it’s like a 14-28 equivalent? It sounds like a nice, crisp, lifetime lens….better not drop that puppy! What the next body for you? Congrats on the new gear….

  3. Justin – This is NOT the ice park, thankfully. It’s close by, but actually a whole different canyon/river. Perhaps someday in the future it will be another ice park too!

    Dave – Yes, 14-28mm equiv. Next body will be the E-620.
