Hi Scott,

Great set - I'm nuts about #2. The view and the light are stellar.

Hi Scott...Beautiful captures. You have helped me in the past with Polar Bear advice which worked out great, Thanks. Question, I love #1 and was wondering if you find working with a tilt shift difficult.I am headed to Iceland and was thinking that some glacier beach images would be interesting with a TS lens. Any thoughts? you seem to have mastered it quite well, thanks in advance, K

kalina54: I am sold on the TS. Not so much the tilt component but the shifting. Without shift the horizon will be distorted. With the shift - the horizon and the trees will be normal looking. Just make sure you take a level, level the camera, and then shift and focus. The only time I use anything other than tilt/shift is when i) I need a faster lens in the dark (aurora, milky way) or 2) a longer lens does not cause the distortion as much. The shift is also fantastic for stitching - the frames line up exactly and you don't throw away 1/2 the picture when stitching. However, the tilt is harder to master. You really need to memorize the degree of tilt (about 1-2 at full height and 6 or so really near the ground) and understand that tilt only works where you have a flat horizon (ice, beach, but not trees etc). I would not buy the tilt and head off to use it on a important trip - it requires practice - but I would suggest once you have used it for a month, all the other wa lens will bother you. Scott

You have some great shots. I cant choose between 1, 2 and 3. All of them are great

What an excellent series, Scott.
And your last image again brings to mind the question: is it necessary to be partly crazy to live in Canada in winter?
If so, I'm glad of it, because the pic of your buddy in the river is wonderful.
