This is a photo of one of our National Parks I took last Saturday.
I took it from the southern end of Lake Taupo. The distance between the Lake & the Nat Park is approx 100km.

Doug, this is gorgeous! I love the scale the bird brings this image.

Definitely. I was sitting in that spot for quite a while waiting to get some better light on the peak. The Elk wondered out of the small grove of trees to the right. So then it turned into waiting on the light and the elk to pose just right. LOL

We found this "little" waterfall just on the side of the road when driving on Bordoy island in the Faroe Islands.

Hey, folks, I have a question and hope someone can help me out. Many landscape photos I took had grainy sky and clouds. In contrast, the land is sharp and noisy free. For example the following photo was taken with a stable tripod. The aperture is f9 (sharpest aperture for canon 24-105mm lens), and focal length is 24m (wide angle) I focused about 1/3 of the infiniti. But I still got this granny sky and cloud. Not sure where the problem is. Any input will be greatly appreciated,

And here are a couple of more from the same trip. We spent two weeks in Glacier and two weeks in the Tetons. A great trip, but a lot of driving! From Dallas, it takes a while to get to Glacier....

A couple of 5DIVs, some lenses, tripods, filters and bags. More than I need.

I'm not seeing any grain in the sky. Are you shooting JPG or Raw? Are you doing any post processing? I find that the sky is very difficult to capture accurately, due to the high dynamic range of the image and that often times I need to DeNoise the image (or at least the sky).

I find this sometimes. I guess it is because the sky is smooth and light so any grain is lost in the detail of the land. What I do is isolate the sky and apply some smoothing leaving the land to look after itself.

@Scott. Thanks for the input. I usually shot in raw with bracket. I merge the 3 or 5 bracketed photos into one and save in JPG (the forum only allow me to post photo with size < 10M). Next time I will do some noise reduction with the sky and clouds.
