    We got of the small train and Ayesha wondered if we were in the right place as the train moved out!!


    We started walking towards what we thought was our hotel..


    But why go to all this trouble in such weather and take this long trip..

    Because, as I have said previously, It Is There...The Eiger that is..3900 mts.
    of magnificent rock and snow...


    We had come to see the rock face of the Eiger. To face our fears and enjoy
    it magnificence.
    RAYYAN...Great To See You & Back With A Bang! Beautiful Work! We Missed You Sir!!!

    Rayran... welcome back!! Lovely stuff. Can't wait for the rest!

    Matt, that 28-300 is impressive! Or the guys behind the lens is!

    I am embarrassed to say I didn't know there was an analog section. I'll have a look!

    Not necessarily. Do what I did; buy a second-hand Nikon bellows and slide-holder combo (for 35mm slides and negs. It's tripod time for M/F) for a few pennies on eBay, saw off the length to suit and attach it to your D700 with a Micro Nikkor 55. Point at window, shoot RAW and voilá - perfect scans.

    Wow, that's a tip!
    Would be worth a video tutorial though for those (like... well, myself ) with 2 left feet in lieu of hands.

    For example, how do you determine which length has to be cut out?




    Steve: thanks -just a snap of toys left to rust in a farm nearby where they sell their production, produce, meat. They were clearly looking at me thinking i was certifiable, so i didn't dare to take the real Eggleston setup.

    Corlan: beautifully photographed and narrated. I like the comments from the last one. Isn't it wonderful watching people going through places of worship
    in awe and admiration. As students of religion or history.

    You have captured the atmosphere and the diversity in such places very well Corlan.

    Last shot of the day then...

    (still with the 105VR)

    The last shot Corlan, but arguably the best of the series. Super work here.

    [QUOTE=m_driscoll;252251]Rayyan: Welcome back. A nice grouping of photos. The train station and tree in the mist and "bam", the Eiger. The first two are extremely well pp'd and composed. The tracery of the tree is just strong enough (i usually oversaturate and lose the quality of the mist). The mountain photo's magnificent. We saw the Eiger from the other side in Grindelwald. I'm looking forward to more mountain adventure and photos.

    Cheers, Matt

    For now, magnificence it is. On your Eiger photo, snow sounds like a distant promise -the kind which will require efforts and determination.

    Lovely shots in the mist, both the station and the tree. In the latter, respective angles are impressive. Sounds like this little guy will not give in easily to laws, and forces, of nature.

    For that, you could've gently carved in a "R", and a "A".

    The rear lens mount turns 90 degrees for vertical and horizontal ease but in this case you take advantage of this to mount it to the D700, as modern cameras have a "fatter" base to clear, nevertheless it does fit perfectly.
    Here's one on sale, this is just so you can see the attached pictures the seller has posted.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    My camera combo this trip was the D700 and the ZF 50mm planar.

    Here is a capture from this combo. No pp except slight ' s' curve and resizing.

    The first is a crop from the scene. The second a 100% crop from the same scene.

    A lovely small stream up in the Swiss forests. Just me and the stream. Nothing for kilometers around. Spent an hour sitting by the stream..watching and listening..





    Just the birds, gushing water, a few pebbles, a few leaves and me.

    Is it the 50 1.4? Or the Makro Planar? ((mis)understood from your dedicated post that you did have the latter, not the former)

    And, thanks for your kind words

    Corlan: The water was cold..very very cold. I do have both the Planar and the Makro. In the dedicated thread, I was indeed talking about the Makro.
    The weight and feel just swung me over to the Planar at the last moment.

    Thank you.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    I continued past the stream. The light, never bright, took on a magical appearance as I approached a sharp descending bend..


    I had to go forward. It was too good not to go through that opening. Anyone would have gone forward to see what was beyond.

    As it would turn out several hours later, it was a mistake! A very dangerous one at that!

    I had to go forward. It was too good not to go through that opening. Anyone would have gone forward to see what was beyond.

    As it would turn out several hours later, it was a mistake! A very dangerous one at that!

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    I continued forward, oblivious of the time. It was ' wickedly ' beautiful. The sights and smells of the forest, rushing streams, small waterfalls..seen it in the movies; experiencing it in real life was a joy, was priceless.

    I had a gnawing feeling though. I had seen no sign posts. It was indeed strange, more so that I was in Switzerland!! The steep incline along the path was disconcerting. The descents on walking/trekking/hiking paths I had encountered
    were considerably more gentle.

    Who cared? I should have. Because here I slipped. Trying to grasp the grave/rock bruised my elbows. The knees gave way. The D700 went to a side.
    The backpack rested in the stream, caught up in the undergrowth.

    It was a deceptively nasty slope, fast and cold stream...

    Rayyan: Nasty! Looks like you and your camera were, more or less, OK. As Graham pointed out, this looks like our woods (wet and slippery). Rich colors and hanging mist. Cheers, Matt

    Some cold, monochromatic, water and rocks. The Spokane River at the downtown Riverfront Park. The guy was actually fly fishing and had just caught a nice rainbow! The falls are upriver from the bridge. Cheers, Matt.

    Nice but treacherous environment, Rayyan.
    Thankfully it was just cuts and bruises this time.



    Matt: at least -from your photos- not as deceptive a stream. This one looks dangerous enough... won't play around with a camera.
    Interesting to see the "natural desaturation" on the rocks in the lower strata.
    Like the last shot for rendering all of the above

    What an interesting bridge. Nicely seen & shot! You can feel the coarseness in the rocks in # 2. The 28-300 is proving to be a versatile & sharp lens Matt! Nice set!

    Hey i know the place (and the chef)... nice decoration, good food. Unfortunately some of their specialties might not have been to your taste, but did you have dessert? They're splendid (well, at least they used to be a while ago).

    Evian? What's that?


    Lovely vineyard shot. Very alsacian!
