Thread: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Hey Matt,

    You're exactly right - Roozen-Gaarde. I went up to La Conner after the Seattle Leica Road Show stop, but the fields were already down due to the early Spring weather, so I went over to Roozen instead - a beautiful place!

    Best,

    Jeff

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Someone made a comment on another site saying the Leica M9 wasn't suiable for landscape photography - as soon as I read that rather lame comment I thought of this thread.

    Beautifull!

    I had thought of linking this thread however I felt I'd be dealing with a closed mind and thought it'd only be a waste of time....

    I enjoyed both shots but knew there had to be some PP going on there some where. The images just looked a little too mellow for something coming out of the back of an M9.

    Great thread here, some of the best landscapes I have seen for a while !

    Elmarit 28 Asph., 90 sec exposure (the diffused red hues in the sky are from Calima, desert sand in the sky coming from Africa. The orange hue on the rocks is from natrium lamp light, from hotels on the beach....)


    CV15/4.5II and (custom made) grad ND


    Noctilux 1.0 (2 x 2 mosaic stitch)


    CV15/4.5 II, two landscape formats stitched for a square

    OK, its been a while since I've been here. Work and life have interfered with my forum browsing. :-) Here's a few recent shots. The first two are from a road trip into Kern County, CA two weeks ago:

    135 APO-Telyt cropped to wide format:



    Hills of pink Clarkias, 21mm Elmarit:



    Tehachapi Wind Farm, 21mm Elmarit:

    Lovely Jeff - and you certainly seem to be getting around
    but where is the picture from the top of the Matterhorn?

    Thanks Jono--as for the top of the Matterhorn--Ha! My sea-level lungs couldn't handle the top of the Matterhorn, never mind my muscles. I've been working in London a lot this year, and my wife and daughter joined me about ten days ago. We left last week for a ten-day holiday in Paris and Switzerland. Tomorrow we take the Glacier Express from Zermatt to St. Moritz. More things to see and photograph!

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    I just put an iMac that seems to be about three feet wide on my desk at work, and now everywhere I look I see high resolution screen-savers. Here are two which are from about halfway to the top of the Matterhorn, in Jackson Hole WY:


    yes, I know the horizon is tilted in this, but I like it that way, complementing the grasses, and

    full resolution jpegs of each are available at my pbase site.

    Total agreement here. Breath taking somehow just isn't enough of a description for this image. This is one of those times that I saw an image and said to myself "wish I had done that".

    Eleanor, Otumay, Don, and Stef - wow, thanks a lot ! It was really kind of once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and great to have my Leica with me then.

    My newest toy, the Nocti 1.0 is a fascinating lens :-)

    I actually put my M9 on a tripod (first time) and did some water photography. Here's one of the Snake River, Colorado...across the road from my house. 75 cron lens. Eleanor
