For those of you sweating through those Northern Hemisphere summer heatwaves, a little snow from down here. I had a few days over in New Zealand last week.
Double Cone summit above Remarkables Ski Area
Shadow Basin - I didn't realise at the time, but that flat area in the centre contains a small lake, and I just happened to ski over it!😧
Wye Creek valley and mountains beyond the southern limit of the ski area.
Looking back into the ski area from the same point as the picture above.
Clouds I was lucky much of the time that the clouds were either down below or up above or even both at the same time, but quite clear where I was. As the sun started to drop in the late afternoon, things could look quite dramatic.
More Clouds, somehow managing to stay out of the valley!
All shot with X-E3 and 27 f/2.8. I wanted to keep the set up light and relatively compact to avoid damage - I suspect I may have rolled over it a couple of times😖. Despite it's small size, I didn't have any problem operating the camera with thin gloves on and could almost get away with it using thicker gloves as long as I just stuck to the main settings. No problems with the cold, although I would only take a couple of photos before putting the camera back in the bag - it didn't get above 0C most days.
Taken at Weymouth in August last year. I'm an inexperienced landscape photographer and I would like to know what others, who are more experienced, think of this. An unmodified, except for the removal of half a dozen navigation buoys, sooc jpeg taken with my then new X-H1, and the 16-55 f2.8 zoom.
I took a weekend trip to the Davis Mountains this weekend...This is probably my favorite shot of the bunch took. I'll get some more on here tomorrow.
EDIT: I'm typing this edit from my phone, my keyboard is officially dead (I typed the above with the onscreen click keyboard, hence the blandness that comes off in it's tone lolol) I got in not long ago and still processing a few others, can't wait to get em posted!
I came across this article on a feed and thought it was worth sharing. This young South African photographer has made an incredible image of the Milky Way above Cape Town, from atop Table Mountain. Read the article to see how he did it with... an Olympus EM-10 and kit lens!

I will be sharing more of the stuff I find on this board, I encourage you all to do the same. Let's get the conversations going again on this slick new platform.
