The blue mountains (The Sibylline Mountains, Marches, Italy)


[...] E che pensieri immensi,
che dolci sogni mi spir˛ la vista
di quel lontano mar, quei monti azzurri,
che di qua scopro, e che varcare un giorno
io mi pensava, arcani mondi, arcana
felicitÓ fingendo al viver mio!  [...]

Been to Viterbo and back home today, just had time for a couple hours walk. Weather was bad, but I still had fun. I've shot only with a Nikon D200 and Nikkor AI 28mm f/3.5.

In the past 20 days I've done 3200+ km of driving for various reasons, and I got sick (thankfully?) now that I have a few weeks of not having to travel as much.

Love that red Volvo

Same, too bad it was parked very close to another car (our of frame) and to the walls in front. Viterbo is a very beautiful, small city. If someone needs a great backdrop, that could be a great option.

A couple of shots from last December in Sorrento.

This image is sublime.

Certain images of distant mountains "click" with me, and this particular one is definitely one of them. Saved it for viewing during a rainy day (hope you don't mind, muntanela), it's now in a company with few images of Kilimanjaro and mountain view around Yerevan...

A shot from today, here in northern Sweden. Linhof Techno, H4D-50, SK47XL f/16, a bit of rise.

I don't mind, on the contrary...

P.S. Do you know the photographs of Vittorio Sella in Georgian Caucasus?

P.S. Zorki5? My wife bought a Fed (if I remember well the name) in URSS many years ago, and never used it, I found it recently, but, fiddling with it,  I made the (maybe) fatal mistake: I changed the shutter speed with uncocked shutter. Anyway, I've never taken photos with it.

No, I didn't know. Googled them... very interesting, but not special for me. What fascinates me in certain mountain images is the combination of a long lens, some mist, and composition that almost makes background look like it's closer than foreground... up to the point you start thinking they are shot with different lenses. All this gives the image some surreal look, and yours have it in spades for me.

P.S. Zorki5? My wife bought a Fed (if I remember well the name) in URSS many years ago, and never used it

It's usually spelled FED, as it's acronym for Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky, the founder of "ЧК" (che-kha), that later became NKVD, then KGB, and now FSB...

I still have FED-5, as well as Zorki-5 (my favorite, built with high precision, a Soviet Leica, so to say), Kiev-30 (James Bond spy-type camera :) ), and Vilia, all from Soviet times.

I found it recently, but, fiddling with it,  I made the (maybe) fatal mistake: I changed the shutter speed with uncocked shutter. Anyway, I've never taken photos with it.

FEDs indeed have issue with that, but changing shutter speed with uncocked shutter should not be fatal. Yes, the mark only points to the correct shutter speed when the shutter is cocked, but you can change it anyway, and not break it -- unless you, say, have it set at max speed already, and try to turn it further, applying excessive force (which, yeah, can happen if you're doing it when the shutter is uncocked, so you do not actually see the current speed).

Haven't been here in a long time, so first, many thanks to everyone for sharing your work!

Every year in December we get winter storms/ high winds combined with very high (and very low) tides known as King Tides. In the first attached image that rock in the middle ground is actually a bedrock extrusion. I went out one night at the lowest tide I've yet seen and it's almost 12' above the sea floor around it.

Both of these were shot with my Samsung Galaxy S4; it's small enough to fit in my pocket and somewhat impervious, in its Otterbox case. Fortunately it wasn't raining much, but the spray was hitting the screen hard enough that the drops were changing the camera settings.

Thanks for the interesting informations Zorki. 
I have asked my wife about the story of her FED. She has told me that actually she didn't buy the camera. A guy asked for her skirt (salopette) and shoes, both were made of jeans, he wanted to give them to his girlfriend and offered in return his FED. My wife (was 22 y.o in 1975) didn't need a camera but the guy insisted, he wanted those western clothes, and finally the deal was made. When she was back at home, in Italy, she found in the film of the FED some images of that russian girl... She actually took also some shots and they were indeed of very good quality  :)

Yet another image from one of the museums on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Ś in this case, the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art.  (Fuji X-T1, 18-55mm kit lens.)

Okay, been spending some time snapping at friendly non-models:

It's a brief series: can't post a pýcture or it makes no sense.

Passes the time, and makes the ancient D200 seem less a waste of money.

Great images, beautiful model, and an interesting essay on the second page about the state of professional photography.

I've been shooting as an amateur for 60 years now.  I'm glad I never tried to make a living at it.  Hats off to those of you who did.

Chris got it just right. Thank you for that wonderful -- what? Project? Mini-magazine? Whatever you call it, it is quite magnificent.
You clearly haven't lost the touch.
