The 2020 Monthly Challenge - March - Wide Angle Shots

This is a Monthly challenge to give us 12 different themes for the year to pursue photography - easy themes but themes that will make us have something to work on.

The full list containing each month's theme is at: The 2020 Monthly Challenge - PentaxForums.com

For February, the theme is "Wide Angle Shots - 35mm (equiv.) or wider".
The rules are that there are no rules!

First, there are no awards... this is for fun only.

Second, it's not a "ok I posted my picture for the month, I'm done" challenge. It's meant so that you will have something to focus on every month. Ideally, you will post one picture every day based on the theme. But there's no pressure - no one's keeping tabs If you post one a week that's fine. If you post the best shot of the month that's fine too. Just go out and have fun and shoot, and hopefully be challenged to improve your photography.

Third, conversation is encouraged. What are you learning and what are you enjoying in regards to this month's theme?

It's for 35mm or wider in full frame equivalent, so in APSC it's 24mm or wider. On micro 4/3, 17mm or wider. For the 645D/Z, 45mm or wider.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's shots!

I took this tonight, I was doing something in the house, walked outside and happen to see the clouds. So I grabbed the camera jumped in my truck and headed out to the country. It was getting close to sunset, and being the day before the full moon, moonrise was well before sunset. Anyway I shot this with the DA 20-49 at 20mm, the goal here was the clouds, the barn provided a nice foreground and the moon an added bonus. 20 mm allowed me to get just the amount of clouds I wanted.

Question: Can we use different wide angle lenses for the challenge? Or are we limited to one lens only?

Thanks, Allen. I'd read that previously, but somehow I was under the impression we had to pick and choose a single wide angle lens. Good to know there's no such restriction - and hoping to see some more entries!
