Took a long while …

2020 was photographically speaking not the most exciting years, hazy skies from forest fires in the west for most of the summer, monsoon cancelled, winter a no show, until this week and today the clearing winter storm with Ansel Adams like drama in the sky. Of course this happens right on a day when the calendar is full with work related appointments. So all I could do is rush out for half an hour and quickly capture what can be seen from home. A second hand tele, long ago devised for the US army to take pretty pictures along the iron curtain is not the most practical solution on a modern camera but still does a great job. The resolution is amazing, and in large print 40″x80″ it should look awesome. We shall see when the print arrives.

  1. was ist das denn für ein Rohr mit dem du das Bild gemacht hast?


    1. LEICA 180MM F/2.8 APO-ELMARIT-R E67 ROM mit Adapter fuer m-mount. Ist mal fuer die US Army konzipiert worden, damit sie die Ossis besser sehen koennen. Nicht super praktisch, aber mit Ruhe eingestellt erziehlt man eine tolle Aufloesung.


      1. Als APO Objektiv und in der einfachen, ich meine unkomplizierten Bauweise des Elmarits kann ich gut verstehen, dass die Amis.sogar die Rangabzeichen der Vopos sehen konnten.😂
