Spent around a week up there before the campgrounds closed for the year.

These are all super-quick-first-pass edits to see how I like them. Once I get an idea of what I like, it will take me around a MONTH (straight) to process all of these for printing. Some of them are over 40,000 pixels wide. I need a new computer! :lol:

By the way, I ran into a bear at exactly NOON when walking around a corner. We startled the Schit out of each other. :lol: He just backed up slowly and then laid down in a patch of bear grass and just started munching away while on his belly. Once a patch was cleared out, he would wiggle forward on his belly and rest while he swung his head side to side eating more grass. I was going to get a shot, but a loud group of people chased him off before I had a chance. What a rush! :)

Amazing, all of them, but I especially like 4 and 5. I wish I could go there someday.
Would you mind sharing a bit of insight on how you went about capturing those two shots in particular?

I hope you can too! I think it's safe to assume that this is one of the world's most visited Mountains, if not THE most visited. It's crazy how many people from all around the world come here just to see this one place and nothing else. :D

It's super intense in real life. Photos do no justice to how huge and epic this place really is.

#4 was a pain in the ass to process and capture. It is many photos stitched together for exposure and depth of field. The hard part was keeping the lens from flaring like crazy when exposing the foreground. I had to put my finger in the way to keep it even possible. I positioned the camera in portrait mode to get more resolution and it is around 10 photos wide and 3 deep. This one will be a good 20-40 hours of work to make it perfect.

#5 was much easier as I didn't have to worry about flare, and is the same setup as #4.

Taken with either a 16-35II or 70-200 F4 L IS. Wish I had a Nikon 14-24 on there for this trip, as it handles direct flare better than any UWA lens Canon makes. I will pick one up next year for sure.

The only thing stopping me from getting that lens is the difficulty/expense of using filters with it...

I would use it primarily for cases where no filter is needed. Putting a filter on there would defeat the purpose of having a highly flare resistant lens. :D

I would still keep my 16-35II and my Lee filter kit for most of my shots.

14-24 is also the king of night shots, as the vignetting is the lowest of any UWA lens I know of. Vignetting just destroys night time panorama stitching. 16-35 loses 3 stops at f2.8. :( Nikon loses just a little over 1 stop. :)

Awesome shots, if I had to pick one to put on my wall I think I would go with #5. I might change my mind 10 times though because they are all good!

Thanks for looking folks! :cool:

#5 is my favorite in web sized format, but when viewed big the other images have more incredible details in them mostly due to using the superior 70-200 L. #5 also has a lot of errors that can't be easily seen when viewed small. :)

What's funny is when I was bending over taking the #5 shot a large bull Elk started honking and strutting his stuff up the hill right behind me. Too bad I didn't have a chance to get a pic of him. I should have an extra camera hooked up to my secondary lens at all times for moments like that.

What sort of technique are you using for capturing these, that you are getting such high resolution output?
