I’m worn out at this point, with plenty of images from the Hasselblad H6D-100C and Pentax K-1 Mark II to work with, but not much energy left to process and publish, so I’ll be heading home in a few days.
Aperture f/11 with the Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8—superlative. But see the next image at f/2.8, equally impressive for its brilliance.
This next image shot wide open at f/2.8 shows why discerning landscape photographers choose the Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 Distagon (note well that the Zeiss ZF.2 and ZE versions are currently $1350 off). I shot some material with the Milvus 15/2.8 on this snowy day, and it is a superlative performer in this kind of light. [It gets annoying having to shoot with a lesser system, the Pentax K-1 II, pixel shift being a non-starter in this shooting environment].
iPhone panoramas are very fast and handy, but the pixel quality is garbage—Ihave to cut the pixels in half for decent quality. Here I got lucky in that the iPhone blew-out only part of the sky and the tires, being nearly black, don’t show just how bad the pixel quality is (my figuring is 4:1, e.g., a 12MP image is a solid 3MP).
My Sprinter has performed like a champ, and being now well-insulated, 14°F at night is not a problem. The BF Goodrich ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2 LT265/70R17 tires worked great on grades up to 18 percent (the paved section of White Mountain Road gets quite steep) in 5 inches of fresh snow in spite of being about 1/2 worn. Going down when the melt had frozen to ice was also no problem.
