Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Examples: Rain to Snow in Lundy Canyon, early November (Sony A7R II)

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar

Get Zeiss Batis at B&H Photo.

These images shot in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountains (Lundy Canyon environs) in early November 2015. The images are presented as a time-coherent documentary group from early morning to mid-day, showing the inexorable progression from rain to snow on an early winter day in which everyone flees the weather, which I relish, since I then have the place to myself.

All of these images were shot handheld with Sony IBIS enabled. Some were shot at higher ISO values and have some significant noise hence as a collection these images represent the outstanding ability of the Sony A7R II to perform in low lighting conditions with excellent sharpness from a very fine lens.

In my review of the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar:

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Examples: Rain to Snow in Lundy Canyon, early November (Sony A7R II)

Includes images up to 24 megapixels. The fine detail in these images (particularly small branches and streaking rain and snow) cannot be appreciated on a conventional display. An iMac 5K or at least a 4K display or Retina display is strongly recommended for enjoying the subtle detail in these images.
