Fisheye Fun - Palouse Falls State Park, Washington

If you follow my photography, you can't help but notice that I have posted a lot of photos from my trip to the Palouse in June. I can't believe that it took me so long to visit this place and that it's magical landscapes have captured my imagination. I plan on revisiting sometime down the road. Not everything about the Palouse is farmland though, as today's photo proves. About an hour and a half west of Colfax is Palouse Falls State Park. We visited it near the end of the trip and we were racing the storms as we drove out there. Upon our arrival, the wind was really blowing quite strongly, and I was a bit disappointed that the water was quite muddy. I guess early June isn't the best time for clear water. I worked my way around the falls and the Palouse River and took quite a number of shots. My attempts at panoramas weren't coming out the way I wanted and then I remembered that I had an 8mm fisheye lens with me. 

The fisheye is a specialty lens that you can have a lot of fun with. I found this spot that was able to get the falls as well as the full length of the river. When I went to edit it, I decided not to try to correct for the fisheye's distortion. After all, I wanted to have fun with this scene so what better than to show you the distortion.
