Atop the Marmot Lookout at 12,800'

Nice spot for a lunch while I check my email: attach my iPhone 4s to the MacBook Pro with Retina display, and there is the internet.

These rock piles are favorite lookout posts for marmots, and they are covered with marmot poop in every nook and cranny. But the exposed surfaces are still clean and good for a sit-down.

Note: hard for me to assess sharpening and so on on my laptop versus my usual calibrated 30" display, hopefully they look reasonable.

Later in the day, I enjoyed a nice mountain bike ride in a modest hailstorm with the sonic crack of thunder following some very pretty lightning. August is “big weather” month for the White Mountains; the clouds can build up to black masses in 90 minutes or less. This is one of the first shots of many I took with the Sony RX1 that drained the battery eventually. But guess what? It shared the same battery with the RX100. So out it came.

No time to properly review even a fraction of the images in the field (meaning in my car at 11,500' before bedtime), but initial impressions are highly favorable for the RX1R (with the excellent Really Right Stuff grip and the brilliant Sony EVF).

While Sony has not done everything well with the Rx1R (some real dumb-and-dumber things are in there), I found myself thinking certain blasphemic thoughts about Leica which I will articulate when I return from my trip in 10 days or so. I am making a point of assessing the RX1R lens + sensor versus the Leica M Typ 240 with the Leica 35/1.4 Summilux-M and Zeiss 35/2 Biogon.
