Tre Cime Evening by AndreasResch Tre Cime Evening by AndreasResch
Tre Cime Evening

We are finally back from our trip to the Dolomites and we had a blast. The weather was good, though we wished that the sunset and sunrises were a little more spectacular.
I have many images to process now and I can only deal with a few of them as we are leaving for the mountains again soon. It was quite hard to chose which one to process first, but finally I went for this one as it's from the beginning of the trip and so it makes a nice start.
This shot is take a little below the "Tre Cime di Lavaredo looking back to where we were coming from. The spiky peak in the foreground is the "Einserkofel" , behind covered in clouds you can see the "Elferkofel". The fog was closing in very quickly and by the time we arrived at the winter shelter, the "Tre Cime" itself were covered in fog and we had to wait till about midnight to see them for the first time.
This is a combination of two images for a better tonal range.

They probably are ... though there has been a huge rockslide 2 years ago on that very rock wall where a 30 story high rock crushed down to the valley.

Oh no ... many inspiring images come from America.

I know but its just seems less magical to me when i find out there from America for some reason. I guess when its somewhere else i feel its beautiful and unknown.

Great photograph as usual, easy to see why you like walking around a bit, they are pretty impressive bits of rock (Australi is mostly flat, compared to these we have bumps).

But you have beaches and we don't ... ;)

:icondontheunsane:
Dontheunsane Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009
Beaches are overrated, unless you like getting sunburnt. If you can find one that is not overcrowded with tourists then they are'n bad, unless you are there to look at all the pretty girls.
Further north where the Great Barrier Reef lives we have mud flats, the tourist adds don't show these, they show the nice beaches on the islands that wind up costing a fortune to visit (it is cheaper to take a holiday overseas than visit the Barrier Reef).

btw... what's your opinion about lens IQ - Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 35-70, for Canon 5D Mark II?
Reply
:iconandreasresch:
AndreasResch Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009  Professional Photographer
The Zeiss is a great lens - sharp, lovely colors and I like the manual handling on my 5DMII. Great value for the money.

Thank U... I also have 5D Mark II and think about Zeiss lens (primary)... but autofocus :(

For nature photography manual lenses + live view is a great combination. You can also get an adapter with a focus chip on it for an alternative control. It's not good for action photography of course.
