The Perfect Storm, White Mountains, Day 2

Get Sony A7R II mirrorless at B&H Photo.

See yesterday’s post. The weather continues, but not much accumulation at 10,100' elevation. Late dusk last night, I drove to 11,000' elevation and at that altitude there was 3-6 inches of accumulation going to crusty ice, but in low range gearing and with locked differentials it was no problem up or down, even the steep slope approaching Patriarch Grove. Still, the General Grabber AT2 tires while being M+S are definitely not as good as full-on snow tires.

The SteadyShot feature of the Sony A7R II is really handy for shots like this—not absolutely sharp here, but darn close.

Very difficult working conditions today. I’m cycling through the ZF.2 lenses on the Sony A7R II: 21mm, 25mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm various, Otus 55 and 85, Milvus, etc. More with some, less with others.
