Foreboding Mountain Face
Lens: DA18-135 at 115mm Camera: K5 Photo Location: Icefields Parkway, Alberta, Canada ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: Mr_Canuck, 05-09-2012, 09:42 AM

Another 18-135 shot that I'm pleased with, although at 1/80th sec shutter there's some shake evident at 1:1 magnification, so I just won't look at it at 100%.

I was drawn to the zig-zag pattern of ice, rock and trees. It's hard to argue that God is not an artist.

115mm is the most I'll zoom this lens with the subject at a distance. Longer is ok for close-ups. All in all, a worthy travel lens that gets you a bit of everything you need.

I have a buddy who climbs this sort of thing. I'll be happy just to take its picture...

Beautiful area. We were there last summer and I can't believe the difference between then and now. It looks so cold and forbidding.

It conveys a sense of peace and also extreme cold. I like the composition and the blue highlight of the glacial ice. Nice!

The zig zag composition of the three elements works very well

The trees really give the viewer a real good perception of size.--charliezap;
