A man climbs the towering mast, raises a sail and secures it. There’s a vivid contrast between the rigors of training and the calm expanse of the open sea. Belcher captures this moment with his SIGMA lens. This wide-angle zoom enables various perspectives, from standard 35mm to 17mm with an ultra-wide 104-degree viewing angle.
