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.

Lake called the Hell of Lapland in northern Finland

294th place
This lake is 60 meters deep and the bank is very abrupt. Centuries ago the lake was a popular fishing and gathering place and people gave offerings to a sacrificial pillar in order to make their fishing luck better. I tried to capture the feeling I had when I was standing on the edge of the cliff looking at the dark water of the lake and thinking of the deepness of the water. I think the 14,3 (24) mm focal length of the lens made it possible to have that feeling to the image.
