Thanks for the link. Very interesting series and read. That cedar forest, along with the area surrounding Hanlon Creek on the east side of the Speed, was one of the best discoveries we made during the pandemic. It has quickly become one of our favourite places to walk in the area. You captured the area beautifully!
I appreciate the feedback, especially from someone who has walked in that forest too. Thanks!

I love this place. On one hand it's just a 2nd or 3rd growth scrubby cedar wetland. It's not going to make anyone's list for destination travel to scenic landmarks. But it's special to me because I've lived next to it for almost a quarter century. During the pandemic I've been in those woods almost every day. I call it "nature therapy". Photography has taken me into every nook and cranny in the search for new ideas, new pictures, and new projects.

Alabama Hills, Eastern Sierra
GFX 100, 45mm 2 image stitch. I love the Eastern Sierra and especially the Alabama Hills area near Lone Pine, CA.
I’m fortunate to live half a day’s drive from the area. COLD February morning, pre-chosen sunrise location.

I recently posted this on the main images thread:
Star Trails over Dee Why lagoon by Ed Hurst, on Flickr

Here are some 'behind the scenes' pictures showing the ridiculous height required to get the picture. In the 'behind the scenes' shot, the car was included partly for a sense of scale. The top of the tripod is perhaps 3 metres off the ground and the camera higher still!
The cops pulled over at around 2.30am to enquire what I was up to - but were friendly and curious.

We rolled into Bandon Beach, Oregon just in time for me to pull my camera out wade out into the edge of the water and get a couple shots before the the sun went behind a cloud bank. By the way, if it makes anyone other than me nervous seeing a camera unattended, my hand is just out of the frame.

Finally, I went back to the 180mm and here is a two shot stitch taken with it.

Thanks Rob! It's been a lot of fun. Sadly, since I am only renting the 180mm I have to send it back to Capture Integration tomorrow. What an amazing lens!

I've heard nothing but good things about that one. Jim Kasson (who hangs out at DPReview's medium format forum) has one and has been showcasing what it can do in his IR photography.

That Roddie lens is definitely not in my budget! But I do like that focal length. Until I can put together the funds for a lens in that league, I've been pleased with my poor man's substitute: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ydQw6aff8zArbeexV5XN9qtVGAi1Fn3r/view?usp=sharing This is 20mm left-right shift. Focus is 4.3km in the distance. It's for evaluation purposes so I exposed to the right and have done no processing.

Wow! Your 'poor man's' Componon-S is very nice! It's tack sharp throughout the whole scene. Have you tried LCC to clean up the vignette on the shifts?
