The Weekly Photo – Aug 27

©Darwin Wiggett

This is the boardwalk leading down to Five Finger Rapids on the Yukon River. These rapids are infamous for causing all sorts of tragedies during the Yukon Gold rush, the rapids are pretty tame now after the right channel was dynamited out to make it more friendly for paddling. This is a mid-day shot that ended up being a photo stop for us simply because of the dramatic storm clouds. Here I used my little travel camera, the Canon Rebel T2i and my new favorite lens, the Sigma 8-16mm ultra-wide zoom to capture an extreme wide-angle view of the walkway and the river in the distance.  For my review of the of the Sigma 8-16mm lens see this blog link

  1. This is a great shot! I love shots like this where the path/stairs seem to lead to an unknown place. It challenges the imagination to create an ending which is otherwise unseen. Great review of the lens. great info! Thanks.

  2. Wowww! What a view!
    I love the perspective you can get with this type of lens.

  3. I was there just last September, walked down to the river, great spot.
