How creative can you get with the wide angle lens? Show us what you can do with lens sporting an effective focal length of 35mm or less. Remember to tell us what lens you've used (no fibbing) and on what body. Compact and SLR entries are welcome, but make sure the lens used has an acceptable focal length (check our Camera Database if you're not sure). Oh, and no borders! Good luck.

We were returning from a photo outing with the photo club in Umeå (Sweden). I was not happy with the pictures i got that day but this last opportunity seemed interesting as the trees were making really long shadows due to the low angle of sun here, and the fields was completely bare. I needed a foreground element and chose to use the texture of the snow for that. Also, I think the long shadows make it look like one is travelling towards the horizon...really 'Into the wide' as the competition is
