"For the trifocal lens challenge, I set up at the Blue Water River Walk along the St. Clair River in Port Huron, MI. It’s a popular spot in the city to take a peaceful walk on the path and spot some freighters."

"For my vantage point, I chose to carefully set my Platypod Max (discontinued and replaced by Platypod eXtreme) on a log sitting near the edge of the water.  The low perspective provided an interesting view of the movement and texture of the log itself. When I switched to my zoom lens, the thoughtful seagull and distant Canadian freighter were quite interesting. For my three focal lengths, I chose 18mm, 35mm, and 135mm."
