Amazing pictures.

I was planning to visit some of these areas for a conference this May and was meaning to take a few extra days to take some photos. Very inspiring. Even if I wont get anywhere close to these kind of pics.

Terrific, Ryan! I've been to all those places and love them, but the photos I took lag far behind yours.

Great shots. It's the second shot Point Lobos that does it for me - lovely textures. You have the eye, California has the light, and combined with the 35mm A and 645D a winning combo.

Pretty good shooting there for a young guy. I liked most of them. Be careful to keep the ocean horizontal in seascapes. I would have liked to see more DOF in the flower macro. Overall, nice work though.

Me too! It was too windy to go below 1/500th (motion blur) and I was already at ISO 1600, so f/5.6 was the best I could do in an outdoor setting. I suppose I could have picked it and brought it into a windless environment, but I wasn't THAT crazy about the shot

Yep, I see I forgot to apply the lens correction to fix the horizons on the multi shot panos.

Some great shots Ryan, well done, that lens gives one awesome starburst... i was interested to note none taken with 25mm ?? im chasing one of these as currently using the 35mm as my widest and also stitching panos until i can get the 25mm, did you take the 25mm with you ? any shots from this trip with it ? Would the 25mm view be the equivalent roughly of say 1.5 shots wide with the 35mm ?
Cheers and look forward to more.

I didn't use the 25mm very much on this trip, as the 35mm gives much cleaner star bursts and I did quite a few of those The times when it was the right perspective in terms of wide angle, I ended up doing multi shot panos with either the 35mm or the 45-85mm. But, don't worry I did use it a lot on my last trip to the southwest...it's a fine lens...here are a couple that I used the 25mm on:

I also didn't find it all that useful when I was in Grand Teton, but inside canyons or along shorelines it's very useful.
