Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Bali - AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED

The Ulun Danu Temple is a water temple located at the edge of the Bratan Bedugul lake in Bali, Indonesia. Built in 1633, this temple is dedicated to the main Hindu trinity, Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva, as well as the lake goddess, Dewi Danu. As the temple base is surrounded by water, the smooth reflective surface of the lake creates a unique floating impression, while the mountains of the Bedugul region provide a scenic backdrop. This makes the Ulun Danu Temple a popular destination for both tourists and photographers.

To capture the grandeur and expansiveness of the Ulun Danu Temple and its surroundings, Nikon professional photographer Scott A. Woodward and his student Cazmir Leenheer selected the ultra-wide-angle AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens. At a focal length of 10mm, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED covers an angle of view of 109°, allowing Scott and Cazmir to convey a dramatic perspective with minimal distortion.

For a more unique shot, Scott and Cazmir decided to photograph a long exposure shot of the temple during blue hour. Blue hour is the period just before sunrise or after sunset, when the sky has a deep blue hue that lasts for approximately 30 to 40 minutes, ideal for capturing landscapes and cityscapes. During long exposure photography, it is recommended to mount your camera on a tripod for sharp and clear shots. For added stability, experiment with remote shooting as well.

Try experimenting with blue hour and landscape photography with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens today.
