Do you look from a different viewpoint to bolster your inspiration?

This was an ordinary day but I was in the forest hiking in the Laurentian.  I was playing with my new toy, (that I sold since then) the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye lens.  I am a bit gear maniac and I don’t hesitate to buy used lenses on Kijiji.  I use them for a few weeks and most of the time I resell them for the same price.

So here I am trying to get the most out of this lens without much success.  When I am out of inspiration, I try to remember to change my view-point.  So here I am lying on the ground looking up.  This is great!  With this lens all trees are heading to the sky from every side of me!

When I take the time to look up or down, I always find other viewpoint that help my inspiration.  You can also get low or climb in a tree (securely)!

About yourselves, what do you do when inspiration is lacking?  Give us your best tips, trick and technique.
