And a few more from my trip - working my way through the initial "teaser" batch of images that stood out when I first looked into each day's output. These are from the first few days of the hike.

Heading up to Mono Pass from the Tioga road on day one, this is just an hour away from pavement and along a trail popular among day hikers who head up to the pass to see old mining structures. There was mining activity in the 19th century along this trail, explaining why there are several of these log cabin ruins along the trail.

This is a 3 exposure HDR image, 16mm f/3.5 on tripod +2 stops, -2 stops, processed in 32bit

f/11 ISO 100







On the third day of the hike we were on the Pacific Crest Trail, opposite of the Ritter Range (where the John Muir Trail meanders from lake to lake). That day, we were on the better trail, watching a pretty big storm that was stuck on Mount Ritter pound the other side of the valley. We only got a few drops of rain on us, while watching curtains of water fall on the Muir Trail no more than 2 miles west of us.

16mm f/3.5 @f/11 1/400s ISO 100







On the next day we dropped into Fish Valley on a rarely used trail (only saw one trail crew over the next 3 days). I've been on this trail many times, but the light in this area was different on this day, projecting green light onto the granite wall as if somebody had turned on a green spotlight behind the trees.

20mm f/3.5 @ f/5.6 1/30s ISO 100, polarizer







The following day we went off trail for about a mile and 500 elevation feed from our already off the main route path to spend the night above a lake few people visit. We started a fire to keep the bugs away while looking at our own small lake valley (Lost Keys Lakes).

20mm f/3.5 @f/11.0 for 3 seconds, a tripod and hold your breath shot at 8pm

Andy these barrels are from the quayside of your home city .....

Taken on an F3 using Extachrome film ....

I took these to use in a presentation related to a journey I took customers on .....

And used the only music appropriate ....

Ferry Cross the Mersey .....

Obviously drinking was involved .....

Thanks everyone, much too kind
Thinking aloud, I have some from my undergrad days, stuck unfortunately in an old PATA harddrive
No idea how to get them out, no one I know has an external enclosure

Here's another from my corporate retreat
Looking up in the hotel lobby

Tom, if the bull goes in the water it "swims" and everyone helps him out to keep its head out of the water. He goes up the stairs.

On this occasion there were 4 bulls for this day. They are out for about 20 minutes each and then they put it back inside its cage and take it back to the fields where he will continue doing his normal life. No bull is killed.

The last ones from this bull series:

Heh I'll join you in the markets too
While the rest queued up for food, I disappeared into the back alleys
To emerge in a rather loud and busy wet market
Channeled my inner Dean, i.e. put on a blase front, zone-focus and auto-ISO
Went around snapping
I was so close to this guy...

Still editing the 600 some photos from the weekend but i see light at the end of the tunnel.
I have been looking the house over for a photo of me from my 20's. Other than my passport photo from 1974, I found this one of me and my two boys Joshua and Nathan. I believe that I was 29 years old in this photo from 1981.

Jay, Since you asked I broke out the 43-86 "the bokeh challenge" is reality. Coupled with the PK13 I proudly provide what you asked for!

Just a quick test to see if posting from abroad works. In-camera-RAW-conversion, slightly cropped and rotated this one in a cheap Android-tablet-program.
Basically I like this view, but it could be better technically, not sure about the framing.


400/3.5 at f/5.6, maybe focused a bit too short.

Wow lots of awesome shots posted over the night!

Rafael, Thanks for continuing to post test results from the 50/55/58 line I know I find it very useful!

John and Peter, Simply stunning night shots, I need to get out camping soon! Also Peter I love the texture in the fallen tree pic.

Francesco, congrats on the new lens and thank you for sharing great pictures of it, well done on the lighting.

Jay, great flora shot the colors on this really pop!

Steve, If you happen to ship on of those barrels to me I would not complain love the red rim on it vs the muted colors in the scene.

Zichar, Very compelling framing and contrast that make this image really something quite interesting to look at.

Lieutentant, Love the last market shot the coloring is great and love his smirk as he stocks his booth.


Nuno, loving all the city shots of the bulls, so much action going on and you capture it so well!

Ken, The shots look like fun and subjects around the house is always a challenging, but rewarding task!

Ratty, Sorry I don't know your name yet.. Great view I love the mixture of man made vs nature framed in a great sky! The texture on the right building with repeating pattern really caught my eye.

Georg,
What android app are you using? Agree about the framing the sticks draw in the subject nicely, but then the floating beacons mix it up too much, Maybe B/W would help as the eyes wouldn't be drawn to the orange beacons as much?

Regardless looks like the workflow works fine

Ryan, thanks! The Android-app is "Photo Editor", have to get used to it and the other tablet-stuft as well.
Here's a mono-Version, but somehow I like the orange buoys.
I miss SilverEfex already...
