Aztec Caves (with a fisheye lens)

This hike is rated online anywhere from “easy” to “difficult.” I’ll go with moderate, in that case. The footing is unsteady, but I made it up with my six-year-old kiddo.

I think I would have made it up the mountain faster if I weren’t six months pregnant at the time. Luckily, there were a number of places to stop and rest.

I took these with a fisheye lens. I was exploring how that kind of lens might be used in landscape photography. Overall, I really liked it.

Since it’s a very wide angle lens, it did a great job of taking in panoramic views. Also, it was fun to distort the inside of the caves. The two below were my favorites from that series.
