Pine Creek to Pine Lake

Yesterday’s storm was all bluster, with the next day clear and still, the ferocious wind spent. And a fine morning it was indeed.

I’m getting a good sense of both of the Loxia lenses, which will be well documented in my review of Zeiss Loxia in Guide to Mirrorless. There is no substitute for field use when evaluating all aspects of a lens, including operational characteristics and performance under varying conditions.

Stripe of Sun on Aspen, Pine Creek
Sony A7R + Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 @ f/8

At higher elevations frost heave is seen everywhere, and shaded areas are not melting. This shot at around 5:00 PM.

Icy Pool in Late October
Sony A7R + Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 @ f/13

Some aspen still retain their leaves even at around 7500' elevation. Late October backlighting is wonderful. As well, the angle of the sun in late October is very friendly; this is late morning.

The upper Pine Creek area has this wonderful striped rock lying in heaps and forming cliffs. The stripes can be inches wide, or as wide as several meters. The darker rock has a bluish cast, and the combination is striking.
