Oh yes, fond memory. Here's my 2013 version.

Just when I was ready to take the picture, a bus showed up and load of people came out and surrounded me. I moved my setup off the road a couple of feet and ended up getting my ass reamed by a Park Ranger for not obeying the sign. I thought to myself, just ask any state or county who builds public roads if the gravel just off the edge of the pavement is not part of the road.

Not really want I went for (the forecast suggested the possibility of fog and a colourful sunrise) but still, not a bad 'blue' shot all the same.

Terrific image. Your B&W processing is always so nice.

Thanks,

Had a similar incident happen years ago driving through a wildlife refuge dad stopped and grabbed the binocs. A park ranger stopped and gave us hell for being parked. Dad fired back, "well I thought you'd be more interested in the bald eagle hanging from the tree on fishing line". Priceless.

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks. I'm sure these rangers have to put up with stupidity all day long and I feel that can lead to an overreaction. But I also feel sometimes tolerance and common sense has long left the room. The same trip I had to take verbal abuse for killing bacteria and germs because my tripod legs were off the vibrating wooden walkway while I was on it.

Hah! I think, in such situations, it takes a lot of self-control not to treat the person saying these things with the utter disdain that one feels!

I narrowly escaped that fate myself; having just taken the Angel Terrace photos and on the way to my car, a tour bus just parked and was about to unload. I heaved a relieved sigh at my fortunate timing.

Nice shot, definitely closer in!

Finally, a sequence of treated images from 90 mm to 180 mm with the 645Z + 67 M 90-180 mm f/5.6. Camera tripod-mounted and apertures set between f/8 and f/22.

IMAGE #1 : 90 mm FL @ f/16
IMAGE #2 : 120 mm FL @ f/22
IMAGE #3 : 150 mm FL @ f/11
IMAGE #4 : 180 mm FL @ f/8

The optimum aperture sits around f/11. Awesome SHARPNESS and CONTRAST. Focus was set on the little white angel @ 90 and 120 mm FL and on the back of the Church @ 150 and 180 mm FL.

Image one is my favorite. I appreciate your composition.

I like it. The reflection makes the ‘island’ look twice as large.

Hiking Sharp Peak in Hong Kong

Went hiking this past weekend and tackled a tough hike made worse with carrying my camera and two lenses. The day promised to be cool with cloud cover as shade.
This only lasted until about 30 minutes before we reached the mountain when the clouds suddenly disappeared and the cool breeze stopped blowing.
At the last resting place before the summit ascend the temperature spiked to 40 deg C which made things rather difficult. At that point you don't have an option to turn around
there is only one way and that is forward.

Sharp Peak as seen from the approach. The pathway on the ascend is very steep and slippery with loose gravel.

645z 28-45 - multi panel panorama



As we descended we heard someone behind us shout as they slipped and fell. The rescue helicopter on the approach to pickup the injured person. I hope he/she is OK.

645z 80-160



One of the views as a reward for tackling this hike/climb. I took a multi panel panorama with the 28-45 to try to capture the view.
