One of my favorite places to hike is through the sand dunes along the beach. Many unimproved trails pass near this cross and over the years, I have photographed it countless times. All of my previous images were made from a distance and from approximately the same perspective.
This past July, I decided to return on different days and find an "altered perspective". This image was selected from over 100 made during a three month period.
This exercise reminded me that your first camera position may not make the strongest image. I also discovered that when you think that you have "the best camera position", take two steps forward and then make your image. This rule applies unless you are photographing near the edge of a cliff.
