My second trip to Oregon was epic, challenging and extreme: it covered snow, deserts, forests, mountains and volcanoes. It was also one of the most frustrating trips I’ve taken — but I learned so much about landscape photography, particularly about shooting with only an ultra-wide angle lens: Canon’s 16–35mm f/4 lens.

TL;DR: I made tons of mistakes, but learned more in 15 days than my last few trips combined. Traveling with just an ultra wide-angle lens is a powerful way to improve your landscape photography, especially your compositions.
If you’re curious what camera gear and clothes I packed, here’s my entire minimalist packing list. And now, here are some of the not-yet-uploaded shots! 🎉
