Late Season Shooting in the Eastern Sierra

Get Zeiss Milvus and Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art B&H Photo.

The first few storms have largely melted off, leaving slip-free walking in most areas (but beware of coats of ice where water percolates).

If you are 'into' cold stark beauty, I think this is the most beautiful that I have seen the Eastern Sierra all year, perhaps in several years. Get yer ass up there now if you aren’t a fair weather photographer only.

Contact me ASAP for a late season photo tour. I can tailor a day or two to your comfort level. Want to learn focus stacking? Now’s your chance inside my warm van.

Bring warm multi-layered clothing; see Gear for the Mountains. You do NOT have to stay at 10,000' as I do; you can go down to the Lee Vining area for 30°F warmer conditions.

See also Ad-Hoc Insulating the Sprinter Photography Adventure Van at 17°F + Western Mountaineering Down Cypress GWS Sleeping Bag.

Images up to full camera resolution are included on their respective review pages.

I have numerous very impressive stacking examples from a variety of lenses, but I am behind on publishing now, because this weather is so very special this late in the year.

This one blew me away. I've been following closely the possibilities of this particular combination of lens and camera with focus stacking. I am now a complete believer. Thanks for this, worth the price of admission-and then some.

DIGLLOYD: I hope Del is not referring to my mfailing to suck in my gut, below! Late season this year has meant almost no cycling, and a lot of driving and hiking.

I plan on updating and adding to my focus stacking section of Making Sharp Images soon.

Seriously, the full 45-megapixel versions of the Zeiss images above can be viewed by logging in, into Zeiss DSLR Lenses.
