Here's a shot I took last Saturday of Mount Rundle in Banff National Park. Sure was an early morning, but well worth it! The follow up shot to this looks completely different, with the sky dark red and orange.

I took this with my 5DsR and 24-70 f/2.8L II.

Settings were:
f/14
10.0 sec
ISO 100

That is exactly the kind of shot that TS/E lenses take to the next level, low contrast images that need large aperture values to maintain acceptable dof. A few degrees of forward tilt and f5.6 would make a dramatic difference if you are a pixel peeper or want to print big, which is the raison d'être of the 5DsR.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

I've said it before, I'm no landscape guy. All kinds of things went wrong here. 1. I should have bracketed. 2. Luckily I had 1 flash so not a complete loss, but still not as good as it could have been. I should have put the flash on a light stand instead of the ground to get better coverage of the Saguaro.  As a matter of fact, I should have used three light stands and 8 flash. Then I could have used diffusers and not gotten that funky colored Saguaro (It isn't far off. I'm just never happy with what I do.). But it would have been more evenly lighted. Or just learn to bracket. Also lost my footing on some rocks. Fell. Cut my hand. Landed atop my camera and the Tamron (I'm 6'4" and 260. Tough camera and lens.). Drove 500 miles for this today. arg!!! Thank goodness for magnesium camera bodies. I got hurt worse than the camera and lens. :) And clouds! Where are the puffy clouds I ordered? The glow around the edges of the Saguaro is the thorns illuminated by the sun.

Just catching up on posts since I was last in, but this really caught my eye. Excellent shot.

Grand Tetons National Park a forest fire colors the sky. Taken in August of 2016. I'd love to spend more than just a day back at this national park.

Nice picture Mooney, you certainly captured the gloomy light very well - gives the impression of late (or very early ;)) in the day, so you used your one day to the max :)
Nice patches of light in the (further dark) water...!
