The joys of a wide-angle lens

On a recent holiday to Brussels I got to try out my new-ish Tokina 12-24mm f4 lens. I’ve managed to get a few pictures I’ve really enjoyed before now, but, I’m so glad I had it to hand in Brussels.

After a great evening out, walking back through Grand Place to our hotel I wanted to grab a night time shot. In the past, I’ve never managed to quite land one even with a tripod to hand, so I wasn’t hoping for much. But, leaning against some steps, hand-holding and firing a few shots in succession I took something I was really happy with. At ISO 500, f4 and only 1/10.

I was stoked! To anyone sitting on the fence of going wide-angle: go get one!
