Not So Warm After All. But the Idyllic Pause Before Winter

The Eastern Sierra is emptied of visitors this time of year, so I get the whole place to myself. The light this time of year is golden, with the fireball low in the sky all day long. Really terrific compared to July or even August, where the light becomes harsh by 8:00 AM.

Today, I shot extensively with the Leica 75mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH as well as the Pentax HD Limited lenses on the Pentax K3, and I also took the time to shoot the Sigma DP3 Merrill alongside the Leica (its lens is 75mm equivalent field of view). I’ve written extensively on the three Sigma DP Merrill cameras, and they do not lose the capacity for shock and awe on the image sharpness front, not even for this jaded photog. Sigma doesn’t seem to realize that this is pig on a lipstick, so to speak.

As I finished up my shooting this evening, the full moon had risen over Mono Lake, and the temperature had dropped to below freezing to 28°F. At 32°F and below, keeping hands warm while still being able to work cameras is a steady ache.
