SNAFU at Snoqualmie?
After my previous visit to Snoqualmie Pass, I was eager to get back when I had better winter gear. Since a warm, rainy period was in the forecast, I jumped at the chance to head back up there on the last day of January. However, while I was careful to make sure I had my parka, hat, gloves, snow boots, and other such winterwear, once I got up there, I discovered I left one item at home...my tripod!
Fortunately, my Sony has in-body stabilization, and hand-holds well, particularly in the bright environment of a snowy landscape.
As usual, here is my vlog on the shoot. Hope you enjoy it!
Its the being there that's a killer. Get up before dawn, come back after dark, freeze yer ass or burn yer buns. Sleep on rocks or crawl in the mud. That's what it takes to get pictures like this.
My admiration goes out to you and Demotex for having the fortitude to do what it takes to get these images.
Oh, and as a gearhead, ya gotta love in body image stabilization. Tripods are becoming obsolete. When coupled with lens IS a 600 mm lens can be hand held at 1/15 sec. Recorded record for OMD with 8 mm is 10 seconds, freehand no bracing. That's insane.
Still, unless you're willing to be there f8 means nothing.
Bravo for the images.
