I was traveling in the Middle East for almost three weeks at the end of last year. I got up very early on Christmas morning to hike up Mt. Sinai, hoping to catch sunrise. It was cold and threatening to rain when I set off and halfway up the mountain it started snowing. After nearly three hours, I'd made it almost to the top, then waited in one of the huts until first light.

Shot with a 1DX, 24-105/4 IS at ISO 6400. I took countless scenes like this, at dusk as well as dawn, in tunnels under the pyramids and in dark museums, palaces,churches and temples. I am most definitely impressed with the low light capabilities of this camera.

Boy, I'd like to think I had something to do with the return of Gary.  But even if I didn't I'm thrilled with the result.  And this time I got the link to the gallery - wow.  I won't repeat all the superlatives of everyone else.

Gary, as a older retired guy I'm back into photography and love nature.  At thirteen I was into taxidermy but didn't shoot much as there was no end of road kill and everyone helped me fill our family freezer.  Eventually I sold my guns and move to photography with an F1 in the late 70's, but family, house building and car restorations and ......  took precedence.  I'd love to hear some background to shots and more about your choice of gear and strategies and so forth if you can spare the time.  If such is already out there please point me to it.

I'm starting out this spring near Edmonton, Alberta  where I live, with my new 6D and 300 2.8 II with X1.4 and X2 III which is all I can afford, well at least until I sell some collector cars!  Elk Island National Park is near by with its Bison and prairie wildlife and the migratory birds are now arriving.  I'll be doing my best to capture something worthy of posting with a renewed spirit after viewing those shots of yours!  Oh to live in the mountains.  Thanks for sharing your talent.

Well Jack you've started back with a pretty good set up, I bought the 6D for my Lad & I'm reasonably impressed with the Camera, but you have in my opinion, one of the 2 best Lenses Canon have ever made, 200f/2 L IS & 300f/2.8L IS V2, I'm sure we'll be seeing some great Images at some point, good luck, one oldish retiree to another.

Thanks for the vote of support eml58!

Boy, what a life you have in photography!  And thanks for posting the great shots. 

Same for all the others that participate on the forum - thanks for the shots and info.  There is so much to do and so little time.

In my days with the F1 I was pretty enthused and now when I look back and think of the opportunity I've got at this moment, with this level of equipment, it sends chills up my spine.  Let's see how many more years do I have .........

Now here I is waiting for Canon to return my stuff!!  Our late spring this year is almost here - oh dear!
