Hi all

Not trying to give this one away too much by the subject description line...

I was out at a reserve area this afternoon.... and thinking about the near / far challenge, decided to take this photo... as I believe it should quality.

With a 10-20mm Sigma lens on my 350D Canon camera, at 10mm - this photo is WIDE. I was basically lying on the ground under that little sapling (thus the "near').

The very tall "high volt power pole" in the background is a long way off... (thus the "far").

I think it also shows the contrast between nature (up close) and a man made structure (large, but in the distance).

The electricity people got Nature's blueprints the wrong way up.

Maybe so, Alan, but if you could see what's under that tree, you might think differently.

It amazes me how a wide angle lens compresses the distances and exagerates the foreground. Great shot.
