Just before leaving work yesterday I met up with a friend from work who is also a Leica shooter. He wanted to try out my 21mm Summilux and I wanted to try out his Voigtlander 12mm lens so we wandered around the basketball court on the 6th floor of the Adobe buildings shooting random targets.
I've never been much of an ultra wide angle photographer but working with the 12mm was a lot of fun, especially when you get really close to your subjects.

|Family Afternoon Nap - Canon 5D2, 24 f/1.4 II, f/9, 1/125s, ISO 100|
Looking back on my Tanzania images these last couple of days, I sure do miss it. Can't wait to return, but sadly it will be some time before that happens.

|Canon 1D4, 70-200 II @ 200mm, f/11, 1/400s, ISO 400|
I made this image on North Seymour Island which is a small island just off the north shore of Baltra Island. Though the bulk of the time at North Seymour was spent with the Blue Footed Booby, we did run into a bunch of Marine Iguanas near the end of the hike.

Ed returned to this area on a subsequent morning and made a panorama which I like very much.

|Unnamed Waterfall - Tioga Pass - Canon 5D2, 24 TS-E II, f/10, 0.4s, ISO 100|
I returned to Yosemite and the Bristle cone pines the last couple of days. Unsurprisingly the water was flowing quite heavily all along Tioga. I stopped at a few places to make some images and this unnamed (at least I couldn't figure it out) waterfall was one of the most spectacular right along the Tioga Pass highway.
Sadly, I didn't have very much luck with weather so my plans for the images I wanted to make with the Bristle cone pines didn't happen.

I am heading out on a trip through Yosemite and to the White Mountains today, so it seemed like an appropriate day to release a new image of Half Dome & El Capitan. This trip will mostly be a scouting trip for future dedicated photographic trips, though I'm bringing some new gear which I'm excited to try out.
The above image was made during my trip to Yosemite in February this year. The warm evening light bathed both Half Dome and El Capitan with just a hint of purple starting to show in the sky.
Technical: Canon 70-200 @ 70mm, f/5.6, 1/5s, ISO 100. Grad ND filters were used.
