In early morning light these grasses lit up in the sun. I'm enjoying shooting an occasional ultra wide angle.

Great nature picture. And that light reflects further in the states and over here via the Atlantic fiber cable

Would like myself to have < 36 millimeter, especially for landscapes

Beautiful picture, well done. Your exposure is perfect with well-balanced highlights and shadows, and I love your composition.

Thank you, Toshi and Torgy. Here is a shot looking slightly to the left of the grasses.

This one's even better than the first. That looks like a beautiful place to go hiking.

Since you're liking the area (and it is nice for hiking) here is another experiment from that morning. One thing an ultra-wide lens will do well is lens flare, and one has to be careful (or not, as in this shot) of what's happening.

I had once a physics and chemistry teacher who was very well known for his outstanding ability to mismanage(?) his experiments. They always ended up in chaos

That aside, just came to think about it when you wrote the word
experiment.

Who hasn´t as a child, in the process of investigating the boundaries of experiencing outer world objects with the senses, tried to look slightly at the sun with only one eye partly open and found that it´s easier to do it when getting support from a tree, a pole or something similar,
avoiding the strongest sun rays; instinctively knowing that it can hurt the eyes staring directly into the sun light

(Did I manage that long sentence?)

This well managed experiment/picture brings me back to those boyhood days. Thanks

Torgny

PS
The additional picure sure is inviting. Straight ahead
