My contribution to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness 2 this week is an image I made a month ago or so. There wasn’t much happening bird wise so, I switched lenses, and my mind-set to Landscape imaging. I always carry a wide angle lens for this reason. I was packing light this week and carried my 24mm f/2.8 af-d Nikkor lens which fits in the palm of my hand. I love how small and light-weight it is, it’s just not as sharp in the corners as I wish it to be. The new lens that replaces this lens is bigger, and heavier so, I’ve not jumped on it. I just don’t want to carry the weight.
I am thinking about the new 20mm f/1.8 lens though! I may splurge on it. Time will tell. 🙂 Do any of you have this lens yet? What do you think?

I like this a lot, I like the composition. I hear what you say about weight though. I stopped carrying my DSLR after a shoulder injury. I like the control I had with it (although I was still learning how to control it) but I can’t carry it for very long. I’ve since been through a series of point and shoot cameras, but I’m happy with the latest purchase. Still, I’m not scrutinizing my photos at the edges 🙂
What is the building and the two tall objects in the background I’m curious?
Those are the stacks at the Power Plant. It’s a Natural Gas Electricity Plant. The stacks are 500ft each and produce 530mw each.
Wiki-pedia has a good write up on the plant and history at the link:
I thought that is what it was – thanks for letting me know 🙂
