Great job, wonderful.. Always enjoy skiing @ Mammoth


Me too! It's the best trip with the family. Photography at dusk and dawn and skiing the rest of the day.

Thanks Jim. The Mono clouds do get crazy sometimes.

I personally like #1 the best as well but it seems we are the minority here.

A spectacular trio, Fred! I love all of them, but the composition on #3 is superb--food for the visual cortex!



Thank you!

Yes sir! First two are spectacular and I like that you did not try to fully open the shadows in the first one which would have ruined it. Second one rolls those U.F.O. objects in line from the sky together with alien landscape.

How do you like 28/2 on R2? I had huge problems with perhaps incorrect register distance with Novoflex adapter which almost reversed the field curvature.

The Distagon 28/2 is an amazing lens. The micro-contrast and colors are top class. Its field curvature actually helps for landscapes where I can get sharp foreground and mountains at distance in focus with only one exposure. This lens needs some stopping down for the very edges of the frame and I usually shoot at f/8 with it. (This image was at f/9) Thanks for your comment!

That place never gets old. It definitely looks COLD, though! Although I suppose it could have been a warmer day, since we've had such an incredible snow year I wouldn't be surprised if these were from late spring...

BTW, that 85mm f/4 shot sure looks awfully sharp, did you focus stack at f/4 in order to both the mountains and the near edge in such sharp focus?

Thanks for sharing,
=Matt=

fantastic set Fred...those clouds over Mono are killer! But there is something about the last one that I really am drawn to. Great foreground element, reflections, snow covered mountain range...excellent. Is that the mountain range that is on the west side of the road to Mono/Bodie Area?

Hi Matt,
It's not that cold at this time of year (about 20 degrees) but this sunrise spot requires you to get there at night.
There was no need to focus stack this shot. I just focus at infinity (lens hard stop) and because of subject distance, everything is sharp.

It's crazy to use a 12mm in Mono Lake.
It was a fun experience. Thank you.

A beautiful set Fred. I love the motion in the skies, especially in #2 and #3, contrasted with the sharp foreground. The lenticular clouds in #2 look like they're being fired at you by a large Nerf gun! Great colors too.

#2 is amazing, along with the others as well. The clouds just pop perfect.

It says the shutter speed was 1/100th, that can't be right? Being you used an ND filter it would have to be a long exposure

Looks like a mistake, right?
The reason is because my 12mm lens didn't have a filter thread, so instead of using a ND filter, I took about 36 consecutive images and "mean" averaged them in Photoshop. From my calculations, it gave the look of using a 5-stop ND filter.
Thanks for your comment!
Best,
Fred
