THE STORY OF THREE LENSES
Whenever I hike, I carry three lenses with me. The first is always the telephoto lens. I never know what’s going to pop out on the trail, so I keep this in my hands at all times. This little bear cub (above) wandered to the side of the road. Now, you would think the momma bear that was near by should be my first concern. Actually, the car that backed into me as I took this picture was more dangerous.
The other lens I always carry in my kit is the macro lens. I love bugs (except when they surprise me and make me scream like a child in Walmart—it’s embarrassing). The picture above is one of my first shots with the macro lens. I was shooting a cross country meet and as I waited for the runners, he wandered up next to me. After startling him with my manly scream, he posed for me. This shot hooked me into photography.
The wide angle lens is the final lens in my pack. It usually has a polarizer attached to it to help enhance the sky, water, or reflection. Bring a tripod for sharper shots, for extra weight training, and for defense.
