Title: Mountains, Lakes and Rivers
Post by: dpc on May 21, 2014, 01:51:44 PM
Any photos of mountains, lakes and rivers anywhere on the planet? I'll start off with a few. The first one is a mountain overlooking Canmore, Alberta, Canada. It was taken at the end of March. The second one is Cowichan Lake on Vancouver Island, north of Victoria.

South Saskatchewan River near the weir in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, taken from the railway bridge. It's a great place to photograph American white pelicans.

Otterbeild Bay, Derwent Water in the English Lake District. Taken in the usual rain, mist and drizzel using some old gear: the original 5D + the original EF 20-35 f2.8 L from 1988


Nice picture. It would be nice to see the Lake District some day.

Lake Louise in Banff National Park, AB, Canada. The turquoise colour of the water is caused by finely ground rock sediment suspended in the lake. Note the tiny canoe to get a sense of  scale.

DPC, Llyod, Sporgon, Mr_Canuck, Don, cycleraw,
Beautiful images!  No doubt.
The sceneries are just extraordinary!  We went to Moraine, Jasper and Banff many years ago, your photos brings back memories.  Note to self: before I get too old, we need to go there again.
And I lived in Oregon for 7 years, never visited Eastern Oregon, nor Crater Lake.  More note, go there, too.
Your photos are gorgeous.

Glacier Park is a photographically overwhelming place.  It would be difficult for a descent photographer to get a bad shot anywhere there.   It's difficult to go to a place like that, because there never seems to be enough time to get all that you want.  It's a hard life!

I was through there maybe 45 years ago, but I do spend some time north of the border in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta.

I would like to ask what do you think about brightness of this image. Do you see it as too dark/too bright or OK? Especially in the rocks. I'm asking this because if I look it on my display (MBP retina) it looks OK, but if I look it on my older (cheap) display it looks brighter (actually too bright).

Thanks

This is a lake at Flatford Mill. About a 5 minute walk from where Constable painted the Haywain.

:D Hey, thank you, if you like it.

Yes, the star is a result of smaller aperture (f/16). For waterfall only, I made 4 exposures with 1/8 s and f/22 (I didn't have ND filter for long exposure) and then blend them together in PS with "lighten" blending mode. That way waterfall appears slightly bigger. For the rest (everything except the sky, sun and waterfall) I blend normal exposure at f/8.

Thanks Graham, 

Yes I was in awe up there and so tired I couldn't really put much energy or thought into the shots, unfortunately.  My daughter,as a child, had never camped in the mountains and she simply exhausted poor old ma and pa (mid 60's) on this trip as a young energetic adult!  ;)

The shots are in case anyone is debating going where we've just been. GO

Great thread guys, this is definitely one of my favorite subjects.

Still trying to learn how to take good pictures of mountains, here is a little contribution. Not entirely happy with the composition but brought way to little water on this trip and got seriously dehydrated and had little energy left for taking pictures.

I've posted a few shots a ways back.  They sure don't compare.  Anyone willing to share some of the secrets of these great shots?  What's required, other than decent equipment, which is not my problem although I'm not saying mine's the best.  Obviously the lighting associated with the time of day is one factor and for mountains I see lots of haze.  Would a polarizer help solve that or do you just need all the right environmental pieces in place?

I think, beside good equipment, nice scenery and photographer's eye for a good composition, the post production skills are very important too. Here is an example:  http://www.vibrantshot.com/how-to-edit-the-milky-way-in-photoshop/ (http://www.vibrantshot.com/how-to-edit-the-milky-way-in-photoshop/)  The original photo is quite dull, but at the end it becomes very nice.
Title: Re: Mountains, Lakes and Rivers
Post by: msm on July 28, 2014, 05:08:36 AM
I think landscapes are probably the least gear dependent. It's usually shot with small apertures where even cheap lenses usually are sharp. And I actually prefer to focus manually to get the best sharpness across the picture so auto-focus is not important, neither is fps so cheap cameras are well suited too.

Hi Click,
The shot was taken from a peak called South Ramshead 2052m high in the Australian snowfields. My tent in the lower mid right corner behind the rocks.
Our highest peak is Mt Kosciuszko @2229m
It can be seek way off in the distance to the left of the higher middle peak which is Ramshead @2190m
Thredbo Ski resort is about 5klms away behind the hill about where the sun is coming up.
We are in the middle of our snow season now and there will still be patches of snow into December.
In fact I did snowboard Mt Kossy .. as we call it, on Christmas day on a patch of snow the size a few average home lots a long time ago.
Our landscape is so old and weathered that our mountains are really just hills now.

Great shots from all.  I also just returned from a stint in BC and the Alberta rockies.  Finally made it into Wells Gray provincial park.  The Helmcken falls are over 450 feet high and about 75 feet wide, maybe the highest in North America.  The sun was my enemy.  The first shot is from the viewing side the second from the opposite cliff as I forced myself up to the edge - looking straight down to the water.  You can see the viewing platform in the last shot.

6D with 24-70 F4

Dilbert, thanks for the quick correction of an uninformed statement based on something I obviously misread.  It does rank fairly high on the list of worthy worldwide waterfalls though (19 or top 100 according to this site) and is well worth the visit.

Lovely!

A suggestion: may be crop off some of the water to get the "horizon" on the 1/3rd mark. I think the clouds are more interesting than the water - otherwise I'd have suggested you to do it the other way around.

Thanks for the suggestion. I appreciate it. I will give it a go. I considered the rule of thirds with respect to this picture. I see the mountain, despite its smaller size, as being the focal point of the picture. The lines of sight appear to me to centre on it. However, I take your point seriously and will see what I think. Thanks again.

Ah, yes indeed! I'm wondering where I stored my boots, heavy duty skidoo pants, mitts, toques, balaclavas, scarves, down-filled parka and the various other paraphernalia that come with the approaching season. And I really do have to buy new 'ice walkers' so I can hike around town on the ice and through the snow with some confidence that I won't take a header.

Found it and like it! It sits well with a view like this surrounding it. I can't believe any Hilton hotel could top this.


It's quite an impressive building. It's dated inside. you really feel like you're stepping back to the 1920's-1930's.

Nevertheless, this is from a spectacular mountain, called The Seven Sisters in the north of Norway. Seven summits are lined up and you can cover them all in one day (don´t wear sneakers, be fit and don´t be scared of heights). This is my wife below summit no.2 from the north, Gryfoten.

I'm posting these pictures to illustrate the effects of global warming on the Columbia ice field, a large glacier in the Canadian Rockies. The first picture was taken by my father in 1979 (with either a Canon AE-1 or Nikon FE and Kodachrome slide film, not sure which). I took the second one this September. You can see the highway in both shots to give you some perspective on the relative size of the glacier and the scope of its retreat over the past 35 years.

I like it. The ice skein seems natural enough to me, a light overlay to the water. It may be that the foreground is a bit too prominent and detracts from the mountains which I suppose to be the primary feature. However, having said that, I do like the picture as it is.

Editorial: I have mixed feelings about photographing Upper Antelope Canyon. I chose a photo-specific tour, with a Max 12 of photographers. What really happened, there are about six other Navajo tour companies offering tours of Antelope Canyon, some with photo tours, and others, with regular tourists. When I signed up I thought, great, only 12 max togs, yet, that was so far from the truth it makes politicians look like they are telling the truth. There was over 75 tourists streaming through the canyon. I felt I spent most of my time up against a canyon wall waiting for the masses to get by. When you get to the end of the canyon, you are required to double back, so, while one horde is coming in, another horde is leaving.

I went off-season during a mid-week day.

cid, it may be the degree of saturation associated with the area that's deep blue below where the ice looks swirly that seems a little artificial but don't take anything I say as in any way authoritive.  I take it you prefer not to show the original, that's OK.  I'm not saying it isn't impressive, cause it is.

Hi Jack & Click, thanks.
I am by the coast, so we don't get very hot, and our Snow is about 3-4 hours drive away ... though they are more like mounds than mountains .. our country is so old it is very well weathered away, we have remnants, like Blue Lake.
Speaking of hot temps, my concreting crew is in Tennant Creek just now building a skatepark, it's been 40 - 42C every day there, it's not far from the center of Australia.
But, yes I have not been to your part of the world and would love to get there,  I see so many shots of "real" mountains, just spectacular .. our mountains are a bit .... neehhh
First shot is just out back from my place, I live on the coast from there, I can see that nipple Mt from my back yard.
2nd shot is about as rugged it gets here I suppose, our highest Mt is in the far distance, I am only 100m lower, you may be able to see my tent behind the rocks just below.
3rd shot is about our best remnant of a glacial lake, Blue Lake, you can ice climb here in winter and it does ice over completely in winter.

Thanks for that, Omni Images.  I guess the grass is always greener .....  I couldn't handle 40 degrees C so a hike up a "real mountain" in September was fine by me but still, if there were more $$, oh boy ..... ;)

Well on the topic, as a retired "old dog" I get to places that are awe inspiring but can't really seem to get shots that convey the feeling.  How should one approach scenes such as this that are almost monochromatic?  Maybe a telephoto lens just isn't a viable option or ??  Wide seems to lose the grandure.

Hi Jack.
That certainly conveys a feeling, bbbrrrrrr! ::) The only thing I would say is there is no sense of scale, difficult to achieve when there is nothing else there, even a bird soaring might help with judging scale.

Cheers, Graham.

There are some very nice shots here.  I hope this fits in here.  I took this picture of Termessos while I was on vacation in Turkey this summer.  It was the best historical stop I had on my vacation, I will stress vacation over photo excursions.  I am just starting out in photography and to be honest my piuctures can not do this place justice.  I am open/encouraging critiques and suggestions.  I took this shot with a Canon T5i and 18-135 STM.

Post by: Jack Douglas on November 04, 2014, 02:50:17 PM
Graham, I agree with you.  The only way I might have accomplished that is by going for less mm I guess.  As you can probably guess, hiking up there with too many pieces of heavy glass becomes problematic.  If there is a next time at this site I may go with the 70-200 and carry my extenders.  It's also frustrating that a hike gets you somewhere and then you often have to hurry a little to get back down before dark or risk who knows what.  A tripod is something I should have carried with me.

Might look cold but that was July and it was quite pleasant.

Post by: Omni Images on November 04, 2014, 03:59:15 PM
Hi Jack,
It's a hard one, but I would say it's all about the light and unfortunately YES it means being there at times which does mean staying over .... late evening and early morning.
I'm an oldish guy too now 54 and carrying many old sporting and work injuries, twisted ankles, knee re-con and two spinal ops ... so carrying all the camping gear plus camera gear is really heavy, so going as light as you can is a must. I still take a sturdy tripod, carbon ... my Linhof 617s and a digital 5DII with out battery pack and one lens either a 17-40F4 but really want a 24-70F2.8 ... or I use my 35F1.4 in vertical and stitch.
Most of those shots above are stitched panos of at least about 5-6 to 10-12 shots.
Going too wide will push your background way too far back and small, so I'd say go with a short to mid. You want to try and get some foreground/mid and background ... so going 35mm say in vertical I find is a nice sweet spot.
For really great panos use a proper pano head, I have a Manfrotto 303+, but don't take it with me when I need to go light weight. It's more important when you have close foreground objects.

But I think the most important thing is the early or late light .... so get yourself a lightweight camping set-up and get out there, it's an amazing experience just being out there.
Title: Re: Mountains, Lakes and Rivers
Post by: Jack Douglas on November 05, 2014, 02:15:12 AM
Thanks Omni Images, of course you are 100% correct.  My photo buddy is older than my 65 years and has bad knees so we don't/can't hike together or I'd leave my wife at home (oops don't tell her) and do something like camping over on a mountain top.  Of course some people fidget about the bears but they don't really prefer humans as a rule. ;)

However, even if that isn't possible it sometimes works to get up really early.  Anyway, you're right, lighting is something I've got to start paying more attention to rather than just hiking and snapping pictures.  I kind of know that but being reminded is great.

And stitching shots together I've never done but that's on my list of to-do's.  Do you think my Jobu gimbal would work satisfactorily?  I will also buy a N D filter or two (I do have a polarizer for my 300).  I need to be more analytical when observing photos such as on this thread and try to discern what makes them appealing!  I'm trying. :)

My wide shots are with my one and only 24-70 F4 although I have been using my 70-200 F2.8 in some cases.  The problem is that I'm reluctant not to pack my 300 F2.8 X2 since I'm looking for birds as well.  And it gets heavy!!

Now it really stands out for me - boring lighting.  Here's another mid day example near Rocky Mountain House, Alberrta.

Oh, thank you, but it`s not me, it`s the camera and the weather...It just happened I was around to take the photo.
Straight out of Capture One Pro, which I think renders natural colors better than Adobe Lightroom, which I love to use :)

We must have staked out the same spot, Nineyards. Mine was taken on September 23rd, 2014, at 3:33 P.M. It's a nice locale for taking pictures. It appears wild and wooly but is actually quite civilized. You really have to watch the tourists.

I'm a sucker for the reverse vignetting found in your toned down sepia version. I'm only "disturbed" by the item at the lower left, but that's a minor thing. The old age look that sepia brings, gives a warm feeling to your scenery.

Thanks, DD. I did consider the rocks in the lower left quadrant of the picture. I know they may be thought a distraction by some, perhaps most. I thought of removing them, but I actually like them. For me, they're an integral part of the picture. Possibly a semi-conscious nod to the imperfections embedded in life. An aesthetic/psychological response to my mood, perhaps. I suppose this is one of those times when breaking the rules of composition works for me, even if not for anyone else.

Hi dpc.
I prefer the original, I like the foreground rocks, the only bit I was distracted by was the pointy thing far left 1/4 way up the image, kept looking to it to work out what it was.
If it was my image it would still be there too as I don't have the skills or patience to remove just that! :)

Thanks! Yes, I'm conflicted. The 'pointy thing' is a tree trunk recumbent in the water by the shore, the star shaped part being the roots. I really should have removed it even if I wanted to keep the rocks. I have no explanation as to why I failed to do so. Perhaps a case of tunnel vision. One becomes so focused on one or two elements that one forgets the rest. I need to become more sensitive in this respect. I guess I'll head for my photo files and get to work on this picture once again.

Just a couple from Heybridge Basin on Monday. Got there just as the tide peaked. Lack of wind meant the water was smooth as silk for about 30-45 minutes.

Anyone have any tips for reducing/removing the haze/pollution on the horizon in lightroom? Upping the exposure and letting Auto edit has improved it somewhat. But it still isn't how I would like it.

I can imagine it covering a good part of a wall. I like the plane down left and what it adds to the photo. It's a dark part of the picture so could have been a smudge lighter - but it could just be my imagination of what would make it pop even more.

The issue is I am  traveling with my laptop, which has an Un-calibrated screen.   When the operating system crashed a bit ago I lost the Nvidia adjustment capability in the re install. Very irritating!   When I get home perhaps the Spyder  will cure the issue. 

Best wishes!    Tom

This is horseshoe bend, not exactly lake/mountain, but I thought it is good to share...

Let me know your thoughts/suggestions. It was scary experience for me, since there are no railings and it is a steep drop. I built up courage after several hours, finally getting to edge as close as I dared  :) :P

Tom,
It is the Purakaunui Falls, in the Catlins.
Initially, we weren't planning to go there since my wife had a bum knee and couldn't walk.  But, she wanted to see it so we walked slowly to the falls.
We spent nine days in the South Island, having flown in to Christchurch.  Drove down to Dunedin, then Invercargill, and continued to Manapouri (Doubtful Sound) before hitting Queenstown.  Back to Christchurch and fly back to Auckland rested some and flew back to HK before going home in Virginia.
Drove over 2200 km in the South Island, and had a grand time, just didn't see all we wanted to.
Christchurch was very sad, just sorry that the earthquake destroyed and damaged so much, and still haven't rebuilt what was destroyed.
-r

Nice!  Where is that one on South Island?

Very nice pic.  Beautiful.  (Shame that the net down samples images, both for economy of bandwidth and speed of transfer.  I have often to compromise this at work.)
Hollyford was not too far to where we stayed in Manipouri/Te Anau.  Next time we'll take more time to do detailed exploration.

I have stayed at both Te Anu and Manapouri, great little towns.  The cascade is off a gravel road that branches off the road to Millford Sound, perhaps a 1/2 mile walk.   We were lucky to go to Millford and not have it rain!  Never enough time, even three weeks is just a breeze by in NZ!

very much like the picture. Conveys a great sense of alpine grandeur and human will and determination to perservere even in hostile environmental conditions. A very welcome change from all those alpine-postcard-blue-skies-tourism-advertising-pics seen so often.

However, at least on my screen there seems to be a lack of sharpness on the stone hut in the foreground. Not sure, what the cause is ... maybe just very slight camera shake? Maybe not enough sharpening in post processing?

well I was at f13 shooting landscape without an ND filter and then just had to quickly put one upfront the lens as I wanted the blurry water and clouds at the sunset. I probably used the ND 3.0 / 1000x filter, as I was really in a hurry. It would have been possible with a lower an aswell I think :)

An early evening shot with my 70-300L. Mountainside near West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. Not the sharpest picture but I like it. There was smoke in the air from forest fires and that, as well as the setting sun, may have contributed to the colour cast.

The second is Sawtooth Lake, which is in one of the many Idaho Wilderness areas...moderately hard hike but worth it. The last is a desert stream in Oregon, only accessible by going through Idaho.

I posted this in another thread, but I've reworked the file by doing some significant cropping which I think gives a better result. A forest of alpine larches on a mountainside at Moraine Lake, Banff National Park. The morning sun was just touching the mountain spur on which the larches are growing, thus the contrast between light and shadow.

Yes, I do live in a country with wide open spaces, rugged mountains and vast forests. I feel very privileged. The problem is that the country is so large that it's hard getting around to seeing everything I'd like to.  :)

Southampton port last weekend. Taken while waiting for the bonfire night fireworks to start. Can't decide whether I like the blur of the lights on the container ship or not. More shots of the fireworks available in the fireworks thread and on my Flickr.

12mm, f10, ISO 320, 8s exposure on a 7D with Tokina 12-24 f4 lens.

I do like 'em ... both the absract pattern they introduce as well as the sense of motion they bring into the image. E la nave va ...  8)

Hi, Valvebounce! Actually it's an old bridge in the style of old bridges. It was opened in November 1916. There are seven bridges in Saskatoon. It's known as the City of Bridges. The twenty-fifth street bridge is properly known as the University Bridge.

Hi dpc.
Sorry, my query was a bit ambiguous, I didn't really mean literal age so much as construction, to me it looks like a cast concrete bridge in the style of a brick or stone built multi arch bridge, such as were built in the 1200's and 1300's here.

Cheers, Graham.

These pictures were taken in Switzerland this year. Even tough it is a country where many tourist go every year to see the famous mountains, there are lots of places so unknown (even to locals) and so beautiful.

One of those places is Gelten neaby Gstaad. The funny thing is that lots of famous people like Roger Moore (James Bond) live there but I guess most of them never visited the waterfalls of Geltenschuss or stood overnight at Geltenhütte (Gelten Hut) in the Swiss Alps. Nevertheless, it is absolutely worth to stay there.

Another place is Glattalp. A remote place in the eastern part of Switzerland. I was there just after the first snow.

Another great image of Sierra Nevada (I've been in Yosemite quite a few time, but have not had a chance to visit Glacier and Mirror Lake).  Are you planning to go for Fall color in this Oct Keith?  I am planning to go for the second year of Fall landscape.  This time,  I am trying to slow down a little bit, and stay longer instead of running around like a duck in the first year... LOL...

I will be watching/reading the fall colors report.  The drought may severely limit the quality of the changes.  Last year was marginal.

This is the Eastern Sierra by Mono Lake and taken in 2013.  Since then, it's not as colorful for long.  The leaves are really dry.

Keith, thanks for sharing the nice photo of Fall color and the suggestion.  I am not sure about this year, but the areas seem to have little more rains comparing to the previous year.  I do hope that I can earn more experiences of capturing Fall color in this year.  If the area is not going to show enough color, then I will switch my destination to Yosemite via Tioga Pass.

I am living and working (week days, not weekend) not really too far from the areas (about less than three hours drive), so getting to the area does not require much of plans though, just stay back in the working area and get there in any time when I am getting bored during weekend :)

Below is the one of those images that I captured last Fall in South Lake area:

Hi ishdakuteb 
I really like this shot, I think shots like this need something other than trees. The house, particularly in the battleship grey colour scheme, really adds balance to the scene.
Thanks for sharing.

Cheers, Graham.

This is Ngorongoro crater, seen from the rim, a fantastic place!

The Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera. The crater was formed when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself two to three million years ago. It is 610 metres deep and its floor covers 260 square kilometres. Estimates of the height of the original volcano range from 4,500 to 5,800 metres high.The elevation of the crater floor is 1,800 metres above sea level. The Crater was voted by Seven Natural Wonders as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.
Around 25.000 wild animals occupy the crater (+ birds), with healthy population of endangered animals, such as lions and black rhino.

This is a 5 image stitch from a 5DSR, shot handheld with the 24-70 f2.8L II @70mm and portrait.

Had a play with a polariser, hence the uneven sky tone. Heybridge Basin in Essex, UK
...

Very nice Matt!
The polariser adds a nice amount of saturation to the sky and clarity to the reflections, emphasizing the tranquility of the scenes... Well done!

I'm no landscape photographer and it is humbling to see y'all's fine photos. A good landscape photo is hard to get.

I got this the other day. The lens is Tamron's SP 15-30. The sun is directly to the left so there is some flare. To me, portraits are far easier. There are a lot of things the good landscape shooters do that I don't know how to do.

Navajo Bridge, Arizona, US 89a. The Colorado river is below. This isn't far from the Glen Canyon Dam (up river) or the Grand Canyon (down river). This photo made me wish I had got the Canon 11-24 instead of the Tamron. Never thought I would need the 11-14 portion of that lens. The landscapes are just so big out in the desert southwest. It would have been nice to have been able to get all of the bridge structure.

The bridge on the right is the same as the one on the left. Their uses are different. The bridge on the left is for vehicle traffic and the one on the right is used strictly for pedestrian traffic.

Gives a new perspective on the bridge and environment; I stood on the pedestrian bridge 3 months ago but didn't think of using this point of view... (too focused on the river and the steep banks). Well done!

I really appreciate the kind comments, guys. I'll be going back through there in another few days. It would be very nice to find a way to get the river in the shot. Maybe a very tall light stand looking down and using my intervalometer to trigger?

I usually drive straight through from Mesquite, Nevada to Irving,Texas (1,240 miles / 19 hours), but I'll be taking my time this next time. Only have a few months left here so want to get some memories. Went to Zion national Park a couple of days ago, but it is very complicated for me to get shots there with all the dark canyons and bright skies / mountains. Might have to learn to bracket and layer.

Again, the real landscape guys do some amazing things.

Niagara Falls in Goldstream Provincial Park, Vancouver Island: The waterfall is 47.5 metres high, almost as high as Niagara Falls down east, although it obviously doesn't carry any where near the volume of water. We were there in February, so you can see the ice rime along the edges of the falls.

Still impressive!
Good shots.

Niagara Falls in Goldstream Provincial Park, Vancouver Island: The waterfall is 47.5 metres high, almost as high as Niagara Falls down east, although it obviously doesn't carry any where near the volume of water. We were there in February, so you can see the ice rime along the edges of the falls.

really like the first 2 images of "Niagara Fall" 8) ... "STAY FROSTY" would be my working title for them. :-)

Image with the graffito:
* functional analphabets at work or image mirrored?
* if I would catch those who dunnit, I'd make them clean it off the rock with their toothbrushes  :o

Thanks. The image isn't mirrored. I wonder how they managed to get up there to do the graffito. One false step and that'd be the end of them.

@dpc,

would like to be on Vancouver Island again. Your pictures remind me of my Canada round trip almost 20 years ago.
I crossed theIisland from North to south from Port Hardy to Victoria. Unfortunately I had not too much time to stay longer on the Island than 2 or 3 days.

today we had slightly stormy conditions at lake constance in the south of Germany.

I had my EOS M5 with me and a ND. So I was able to shoot this photo with the smooth water. It looks like the statue is hovering over the water.

I posted a version of this photo earlier but didn't like the post-processing I did. I've gone back to the RAW file, cropped it significantly and reprocessed it. I think it's better.
