Mt. Equinox, Vermont

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by NewBert, Aug 7, 2009.

  1. Today, I spent my afternoon on Mt. Equinox. It's the highest peak in southwestern Vermont, and has a road leading all the way to the top. (You didn't expect me to hike up, did you? :tongue:) 

    Here are some of the images I captured:

    The first two were shot using the 10.5 Fisheye. Everytime I use it, I'm impressed with the overall IQ.

    This image was shot with my 70-300VR. It was an attempt at stacking or flattening the mountain ridges in the distance. I was a bit disappointed in the lack of clarity OOC, which I can't understand since it's usually so sharp and my other lenses had no problem cutting thru what little haze there was...

    My Sigma 10-20 never disappoints me with its sharpness and clarity...

    Finally, a 7-image Pano using the 17-55.

    Nice series. Looks like you had a wonderful trek :)  Perhap just my tired eyes but the panorama looks out of focus

    nice work, what did you use to put the pano together?
     
  13. I used PTGui to stitch the pano.
     
  14. Very nice views Bert. I miss green trees. It looks like you had a great trip.

    God Bless,
    David
