North America is supposed to have the worlds best Fall foliage display. I now have an ultra wide angle lens, a Tokina 12-24, and it is sharp with great colors on both the 40D and the old 1D. I have been looking around for the last 2 or 3 weeks at the places I have to shoot from, with views of hillsides, mountainsides, in the woods with the trees, long distance and up close perspectives, and I have been practicing, getting ready, getting the feel for it. Now they are just starting to change.
But I am getting the idea that the UWA is maybe not the best lens for this. My next closest "wide angle" is the 70-200/4. And I'm not sure it's going to do it either. And unfortunately, I don't have anything between the 24 and 70mm range and won't be able to afford it before the leaves are gone.
Any suggestions, how do you shoot them, what lenses do you use? And feel free to post examples.
