I think this is the highest (not tallest) structure on US soil - hut on Mount Whitney summit at 14,500 feet. 20mm f/3.5, properly polarized to reflect the fact that this is almost 3 miles closer to outer space than nearby Death Valley.

Nice shot & well done reaching the top of the US I doubt many could say they have done that ... awesome stuff.

thanks, but it's not really that lonely up there. 17,000 per year are heading up there. I've been there too many times to remember. It isn't easy, and people do die up there (one last week, falling off the trail in an easy area due to disorientation from altitude sickness).

Unlike the photo of the summit hut above, in August it really gets crowded up there. For kicks we counted how many people we met on the trail heading down, and it was 225 that day.

Here's the real view taken at the same time - another 20mm f/3.5 360 degree pano, and I could not get the people from jumping out in front of me to be in the panorama. One guy is actually twice in the image as he moved while I was rotating. Dark sky to the west and above, a lot of the haze is actually smoke from ma fire burning 40 miles away in the southwest.

very cool - had no idea such a thing exists. However... what the heck is "unwanted natural light caused by neutral oxygen emission in our atmosphere "

neutral oxygen emission - huh? what is the alternative? I could have used that filter on a shot I put on the MF shooting AF thread yesterday where only a tiny town 15 miles away behind the highest mountain ridge in the lower 48 states was throwing redish light into the sky, but more so I could have used an f/1.4 24mm lens... Maybe next time.

That is for a telescope objective (only 1.25" across), but you might be able to adapt it as rear element filter on some nikkor lenses - where you slide the filter into an existing holder.

Just received the 180 2.8 from Larry! thanks for a great piece of glass!. From the postman to the d3s in about 4 minutes, most SOOC. Really nice glass thanks!! Anyone know what was the original purpose of this lens? Just wondering?


Andy,

Nice work and I'm glad you're enjoying the lens.

The original purpose of that lens was to show the world what a good photographer you are, of course.

Long exposures. Tried my hand at 30 second night sky images. It does not take much man made light to influence that long of an exposure. The Milky Way on the other hand was fantastic. C&C welcomed.

Well Done! Light pollution really shows up in these - even far off porch bulbs can throw light so much further than expected.

No post in 3 hours?

20mm f/3.5 AI on D600 again (I know, getting boring)

f/8.0 1/160s ISO 100 and linear polarizer

gnarly dead tree at Bighorn Plateau in Sequoia NP, probably been dead for a few hundred years already. It is located close to a grove of 2000+ year old bristlecone pines

Mild HDR treatment here or single exposure? Your detail and clarity is unreal! I feel like I can reach through the screen and touch the tree.

single exposure here. Good D600 dynamic range at work. You should see it in full resolution - not reduced, you can see the weakness of the lens - soft towards the edges. The vignetting in the corners is due to the polarizer being a bit too thick, not the lens' fault.
