In case anyone forgot, there are some definite advantages to living in Oregon. This is literally a place I found myself at when I needed to kill some time.
Bracketing the day. Sunrise and then Sunset. It wasn't a clear sky, but I preferred the trees in our local dog park to provide the framing anyway.
The whole thing felt cinematic, hence the 16x9 crop. Also, this is the first time I've given the RX1r the full f/22 Sunstar treatment. One of the things I love about this camera is the fixed lens. No dust spots at small apertures!
Also, if you look closely you'll see that I was using ISO 6400 and this file has a pretty heavy swing in dynamic range. Perhaps this image is right on the edge of useable, but what camera can pull off a useable file at f/22, and ISO 6400? Count me pleased!
This is a 14 image 42.6 megapixel pano of the Wahclella Falls gorge near the Bonneville dam on the Columbia River. We try to get out here pretty regularly as it's a fairly easy hike with a nice loop through this canyon with a view of Wahclella falls at the apex. You can click the link under the photo to see a full size section up close.
I've mentioned (I think) that I got my hands on a Sony RX1r on New Years Day and have been carrying it daily along with a film camera. It has a similar sensor to the one on my Sony A7ii, but no anti-alias filter which I'm noticing produces greater detail overall.
I really like how this photo captures the energy in the river, the thin veiling of the undulating moisture in the air and the warmth of the winter sun cutting into this secluded space.
Sometimes you haul a camera bag full of bodies, lenses, filters and tripods, but the iPhone brings the goods. We rounded a bend in the trail to this scene and less than a minute later the fog was gone. I didn't even have time to get another camera out.
