    Here's what the Chugach mountains look like on a clear winter day. This photo was taken from a Seward highway overlook near Girdwood.

    Beautiful Gary. I love alaska...one of my favorite places!! Mountains I can't resist!! Here's some taken last summer with a Phase P45+, H2 and 80 HC lens from a single engine Cessna 172. The Pilot allowed me to open my window and shoot without glass covering my lens which allowed for greater definition and clarity. These are the Wrangell St. Elias Mountains in alaska that top out at just over 18,000 feet. We were flying at about 12,000 feet or a little over. amazing experience I'll never forget! Eleanor

    Eleanor and Gary, incredible images.

    We tried to drive out the McCarthy road and got three flats in an hour. That was the end of that day (after a few mile walk, ride into town, and waiting the rest of the day for the tire repair.)

    Next time it will be by seaplane.


    Loving the trashed vehicles. Wonderful!!

    Here is one a little closer to home I took in light rain yesterday.

    A famous hillbilly swimming hole in the Ozark National Forest.

    Falling Water Creek Falls:


    A few more views and much larger version on the blog.

    All captured with P65+ and Cambo WRS kit.

    Great shots of the Wrangell mountains Eleanor....what a terrific opportunity that was!

    Loved the shots of Falling Water Creek falls and swimming hole Ed. That Cambo setup is impressive.

    Here's one I took this afternoon. Probably the last mushroom of the season. Some of you may have seen the pics I took of these Amarita Muscaria mushrooms with my Canon DSLR and macro lens over the More Fun with Canon thread. This one was taken with my Hasselblad 503CWD and Zeiss 120 Makro. This lonely mushroom never did grow much or open up....been like this for several days now. I think the temps are getting too cold at night. We had our first snow showers this morning, so Fall is quickly coming to an end here.

    Unfortunately, I didn't nail the point of focus as well as I would have liked and the background is too busy, but this is my first attempt with the 120 macro.

    What a lovely "yard" you have in CO, Eleanor. And nicely captured as well. It's still ridiculously hot here in northern California. Thankfully we're to get a "cold snap" this week. It may drop to a daytime temp of 75. Ugh.

    Last year the Sierra fall colors were lack-luster because of weird weather, and according to some biologists, the extensive forrest fires' smoke.

    Thanks for posting your refreshing image.

    Great photo Eleanor. We had our first snow on Saturday as well! We had flurries in the city (and 50mph winds), but it stuck in the mountains surrounding the city. No photos though, sorry!
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    Thanks Don.

    Much more demanding than the P45 but the detail is truly incredible.

    I had the P45 and the cambo clicking nicely. With the P65+ I am still learning.

    Eleanor,
    I love that shot of snow on fall leaves.
    Folks in Massachusetts are putting in their snow stakes more than a month earlier than normal. I wonder what the Farmer's Almanac is telling them?

    Bob - Not too sure about what the Farmer's Almanac is saying however since we had such a dry monsoon season more than a couple old wise Navajos are calling for a wet winter. Based on Eleanor's image I'd have to agree with them.

    I like the "Volvo-esque" grill on the front sidecar in contrast to the humble "apple box" of the second. Makes me think of a class war of sorts... with the idea that the underdog may prevail in the end. haha

    Nice work, Graham.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Many thanks to those of you who have commented on my images. I'm going to take a chance and post three of an on going series I do that is totally different from my other work. (In this case pines, autumn grasses and so on--in the middle shot the river is included) I use camera and subject movement (ie: wind, water, etc) to get my impressionistic effects. No manipulation is done in photoshop, save for the usual contrast, etc corrections. The color is derived from usually late afternoon yellow and evening blue light and the seasons of the year (in this case fall, with reds, yellows, etc.). I took these this afternoon and evening. This series is featured in Texas Children's Hospital Maternity Center printed on heavy Epson Ultrasmooth paper). (P65+/H2/HC lenses )

    Eleanor,

    I like these, as well as others you've posted on your site. I've yet to attempt this technique of abstract art, but I started looking at the methods a year or so ago – reading a bit about it.

    Thanks for posting these. It's a good reminder for me to try. They're beautiful.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Thanks Dale...after shooting hundreds and hundreds of these you learn what subjects will work best (lots of verticals are good horizontals (logs, branches, etc) can cause problems in the end result. Also I've learned what kind of camera/hand movements will tend to produce certain results. I have lots and lots of failures but not as many as I used to. eleanor

    Using the new AFD body and 80 Leaf lens in the studio

    I had to do a proof of concept for a client - a crucifixion, as you can see. If the job is agreed then we'll go for a full setup, including more appropriate dress and a full sized studio etc, but this was to show the lighting and the model and the general idea.

    So given that today was my last day with the new Phase gear I thought I'd give it a bash. I shot in FP mode since there was no ambient light. I found that the AF was off far too often compared to the 'old' setup but when I discussed this with my Phase contact later it turned out that I had not spotted the new Custom Function, which is to choose between 'fast' and 'accurate' AF (I was on Fast and for most of the shoot with my modelling lights set to Proportional rather than Max, which makes most focus systems think twice!)

    In any event I like the results, at least as a 'maquette'. This gear rocks.

    In the finished version I plan to use a deeper studio and much larger background, thrown much more OOF than here and with rather more refined lighting.



    Best

    This pic definitely shows the edge sharpness of the 28. Thanks. Just what I needed to see.

    Yes, you need to process in C1 using the 28mm optimization - and shoot at f11-16 for best resolution.

    Bill: Great shots from the Tetons! I was there last week just as the first snow came down. I had a great time as I am sure you enjoyed it as well with all the colors changing at this time of year.

    Lovely image from Oxbow Bend. Here is a shot from the first day of snow using the 105-210 ULD (see attached).

    For the some other photos I took on the trip both landscapes and abstracts you can check them out at:

    Most were taken with the a mix of 35mm MF, 45mm AF and the 105-210mm (all non-D lenses).


    DavidK: Great Pano! Loving the color play off the clouds in that shot.
