Every time I prepare a photo tour that centers on landscape photography, there are questions on what photo equipment to bring. The most common theme regarding lenses is: the wider the better. But while that’s a natural instinct, a super wide angle is not necessarily the best choice for your landscape photography.
Ethiopia was an absolute thrill to photograph this year. It’s a poor country and yet everyone there seems so full of joy, the smiles are contagious. The annual Timkat festival in Lalibela turned out to be one of the most energetic events I’ve ever attended. And I managed to get right into the middle.
