Shooting Wide In Chaco Canyon.

A weekend spent at Chaco Canyon gave me the perfect opportunity to test out some new glass, the Tokina 12-24mm F4. Not the fastest lens perhaps, but beautifully well built and tack sharp! Certainly a lens that must be used in moderation, but a nice accompaniment to my standard go to primes.

Such a wide lens seems to always work best on the most expansive landscapes and conversely in the tightest of quarters…the above image was shot at the wide end of this lens, giving the image a full view of the Kiva in the foreground, sunset for atmosphere. In many of the other images I was able to include extra details into my composition, not possible with a standard lens. In all the years that I have shot at Pueblo Bonito and in the canyon – this was the most experimental.

Hope you enjoy the images! Jeremy
