Wide Angle Foregrounds

I have a collection of lenses but for landscapes I often end up with my wide lenses – the wider the better. The challenge with a wide lens is finding something to make the foreground interesting. In Milford (and in general) pointing the camera a little down and finding interesting shapes or rocks can help lead the viewer into the image, care needs to be taken with where you focus, as a simple rule of thumb focussing about a third of the way into the image with a small aperture (f/11 – f/22) generally works well. For the more technically minded hyper focal distance is a useful concept to understand.
