For my annual "First Sunrise of the Year" shot I picked the Sundial Bridge in Redding this year. It was a bit of a disappointment because I had premeditated to take a tele shot from a distance to get a big rising sun behind the bridge. Well, the vicinity of that bridge is not arranged with photographers in mind, so I ended up getting a wide angle shot from nearby with a tiny sun. I will post that shot later, after I show the images I took the day before while scouting the area.

Interesting perspective for what I would associate with an ant's eye view, Jens! It certainly makes the most of those strong diagonal lines.

Fascinating structure- you've really got an eye for shape and form. I'm curious about the tree at an angle- is that part of your perspective or a function of the wide angle view...or probably both. It adds a surreal element to an already wild looking structure!

The terrain around this structure required me to point the camera up into the sky to get the components I want into the frame. That causes distortion with any lens, but particularly with wide angle lenses. On some images I correct that, but on this one it was more important to me to have a triangle in the center and the adjacent shapes to touch three of the four corners of the frame; so I left it as is.
