On new year's day I finally managed to break free from routine and take a day trip to the nearby mountains. The cold clean air, the beautiful weather and the physical exercise provided a boost to my creativity and I managed to get some shots that I felt were worth sharing.
For these shots I used the above mentioned Sony A7r, my Feisol tripod, an IR shutter release and 2 lenses: the amazing Samyang 14mm 2.8 and an old vintage Nikon 85mm 1.8 (pre Ai), both mounted on a Metabones Nikon F to Sony E adapter.
Both these lenses are spectacular (at least at the small apertures I use for my landscape work), my only small problem seems to be with the Metabones adapter, using it with the Samyang 14mm reveals a minor alignment issue that gives me slightly smeared top corners of the image.
The shots are processed in Photoshop, enhancing the gorgeous light and colors that were painting the scene. The files from the A7r are a dream to work with, the incredible detail and dynamic range are beyong anything I've ever seen.
