The beauty of a wide angle lens is that it can render a scene that you might walk by and appreciate, to one that you take the time to set up with a tripod to capture. Such was the case during the end of a hike on Little Jack Mountain in the mountains of western Maine. The warm light coming through the trees caught my eye, as did the reflection. The cascade wasn't much to look at first glance, but I figured if I moved in as close as possible to it with a wide angle lens, I could make it much more impressive while still keeping the colorful trees and reflection in the image. I moved inches away from the cascade, and focus stacked several shots to keep it all sharp.
