    I agree David, the San Juans has some of the most incredible vistas I have ever seen. You have this massively wide scene, yet you are only a short distance from the peak of Mt Sneffels with the whole range and valley in view.

    The image I posted is a crop from a seven shot stitch showing more of the range.

    Horsetail Falls

    Horsetail Falls lit up this week on Tuesday night. Not much was seen by the likely couple hundred photographers last night.

    On my screen, the JPEG looks a bit more red than the PSD file, but at times the falls went from orange to red at the right angle of viewing.

    Thanks, steve

    Awesome capture Steve, congratulations!!! IIRC, isn't February 19th is the mid-point of the best capture times, which I think last for about one week total?

    Incredible color Steve. Even if it loses a little red in print, it is still incredible. Personally I think everyone needs to grab as many of the iconic shots as you can. You never know when mother nature gets extreme and we lose some of them forever.

    Thanks for the compliments as well Jack and Guy (that is if a postcard compliment is no longer a slam ). It is hard not to take a great image of Moss Glenn falls when it is colored like that.

    Horsetail Falls

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    The Falls did not light up on Wed or Thurs and, with the storm moving in, the feeling this am was that it was done for the year.

    It seems I was lucky and at the right place at the right time. As they say, better lucky than good sometimes.

    I also love the Moss Glenn Falls photo. I've never been to that part of the country-maybe a workshop location at some future date?

    Thanks, steve

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Steve, can you explain why the waterfall is lit up? Do they light it? It does not look like it could be sunset light, as wouldn't that reflect on the rest of the wall as well?

    Stuart,

    I'm not Steve but I'll answer with what I know...

    There is one week per year (actually two) when the angle of the Sun as it's setting is just right so that the light comes right up the valley and glances along the side of El Capitan. If there's been rain or snow and warm weather, then there is enough water for a small fall to form, and when it does it resembles a horse's tail -- hence the name. But there is nothing to hold water up there, so the fall only lasts a few hours after a rainstorm, or if there's enough snow-pack and daytime warmth to create a sufficient melt to feed it. Anyway, now you need a confluence of rain and/or snow and warmth and clear enough skies for the Sun to have a clear path to light the falls, and all this happen during the third week of February when the Sun is at the proper angle to get this shot, so it doesn't happen very frequently. (Theoretically it can also happen around the last week in October, but there's usually not any water to create the fall.)

    Horsetail Falls

    Hi Stuart,

    As Jack said. The Sun has to be at the proper angle and atmospheric conditions around the bay area have to be devoid of clouds or fog banks that would diffuse the sunlight as it moves eastward. At the right time (the proper orbital positions of the Earth and Sun), the Sun's angle on the horizon is such the water is lit, but the rock face behind it is not. The color can be gray-gold-orange-pink-red, depending on the atmospheric conditions, such as particulates that scatter shorter wavelengths.

    I posted a photo with red, but I'll process some of the others that were bright orange on Tues. On Wed, the Falls failed to really light, but what was there was pink.

    Thanks, steve

    Horsetail Falls HDR

    This is an HDR I shot Wed pm. The color is quite different, more yellow, and only lasted a minute or so. I tried an HDR as the sun went down and the dynamic range went up with sunlight on the falls and shadows elsewhere that didn't come out with one photo well. It was getting dark as I shot these.

    Thanks, steve

    Getting caught up on processing last years images for my gallery opening.

    Smoke from forest fires west of the park made for some interesting light. Normally my attempts at including the sun in the frame don't work out but I kind of like this one so I thought I would share it.

    What Mark isn t telling you is that he really lives in 116 ..ever since his wife found the Amex bill for his S2.

    The images are great ..looks like you are picking up the S2 pretty quickly. If you would like to visit FL again ..I am sure David K and I could set you up with plenty of subject matter. Plus we want to use your S2!

    They should send you to our workshop with the purchase of a S2.

    Look's good Mark and Congrats. Actually Leica is sending me one this week to take on the workshop for folks to play with.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Haha Roger! You aren't too far off. My wife wasn't too happy with me about spending so much for a camera, but she took it prett well. She was kidding me about the purchase again yesterday and I reminder her that I never claimed it was a smart decision. She is going to get some mileage out of it. That's OK because I am happy with S2.

    Guy, I like your idea about the workshop. I wish I could attend - unfortunately timing doesn't work yet again. It is good of Leica to support your workshop by sending an S2. It gives folks a chance for hands-on use and determine of it feels better or worse than other options.

    After buying a Dremel tool at Bauhaus today i was finally able to modify a Sinar lens plate to accept the digital back. This combination works quite well but needs getting used to.

    Nice work Philipp, thanks for posting. I like the second one much better than the first. It doesn't look awkward to me.

    Mark, I like all of these but your first image is an outstanding image of fine art photography. The last two have incredible DR which speaks well of the S2.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Thank you for the compliment Ed.

    I have been watching this thread for a long time and there is some great stuff here. Now knowing just how much more the actual files have over the web size photos, I really wished it were possible to see many of the images posted here printed large.

    Jack, in know where there is a similar scene to your junk car retaining wall not too far from me. As soon as the road is opened back up from the rock slide I plan on getting the shot. The detour is over 100 miles right now so I can wait for the road to re-open.
