Hobgoblin Faces with 17mm Tilt Shift
With excitement, I took off over the desert into Nevada in search of the Hobgoblin Playground, also known as "Little Finland." Not sure how Finland comes into this, but Hobgoblins certainly live here and stick their faces out of rock in weird and wonderful ways. I explored and enjoyed for 2 hours before the sunset with my two daughters in tow. They loved the weird wonderland. Another photographer from Germany also was there.

I enjoy shooting with the 17mm tilt shift lens. It is moderately sharper than the 16-35mm f/2.8 L lens that I also shoot with. I see this mostly in the corners. The perspective control is also such a nice thing to have. It may cost a pretty penny but I believe it is worth it.
