Dear all,

Some more images, taken with an Ebony 45SU this time late August in the Shirouma part of the Japanese Northern Alps.





They are basically stright Imacon scans with very little post processing done.

Cheers,
Bernard

Lovely images, Bernard. Thanks for sharing.

In the second one the clouds look very "Japanese" to me; that is, they remind me of Japanese drawings with clouds in them. Very appealing (although I've never been within several thousand miles of Japan yet.)

Eric,

Thanks for the kind words. That's very much what I like about image 2 as well.

It was just one of these lucky morning when things just get right the way you hoped they would.

Cheers,
Bernard

Love the top one. I lived in Japan as a small child, but being such at the time, I had no concept of beautiful areas such as these. Makes me want to go back almost as much as all my fond childhood memories. Thanks for posting these really real non-stitched photos

Glad to read that. There is a lot naturewise in Japan, but some of these places can be a bit tricky to access.

Stitching is great, but there is nothing like the please of focusing using a 4*5 ground glass. Only the price and weight prevent me from using my Ebony more.

Cheers,
Bernard

Nice shots!  How much work to get to where you released the shutter?

Hello Bernard,

congratulations on your lucky morning! Judging from the clouds you went up quite a bit, the images really convey a feeling of altitude and somehow "godliness", whatever that may mean in any frame of thought.
The slight drifting of some of the clouds is beautiful. I assume that has to do with the exposure lenght? Having never touched a LF camera, I have no idea what is a regular range for those things.
The third image looks almost like a wild sea. Amazing.

Thank you for sharing these images.

Hello Tim,

Thanks.

The first place can not be reached in less than 8 hours walk and 1500 m elevation difference. Out of those 8 hours, about 1.5 are typically done on snow year round.

The second and third were another 5 hours away for me, but there is another way to access it in about 5 hours from the top of a ropeway. Cheaters...

Cheers,
Bernard

Hello Erusan,

Thanks for the nice comments.

Actually these were one lucky evening and one lucky morning, since images 1 is taken in a different location, near Tenguusansou mountain hut (2800 m), while the 2 others were taken from the top of Karamatsu dake (2900 m).

I don't remember the exact shutter speed, but it must have been around 1 or 2 seconds at f22 I guess.

Cheers,
Bernard

Quite sublime, Bernard. This is the sort of thing that makes photography a great pursuit. You get the benefit of the exercise, beautiful scenery and you also get to take away stunning shots like yours, if you're lucky   .

These is nothing like photo trekking is there... when you're lucky...

That reminds me of a trek last August in a place called Choukaisan, on the sea of Japan side of Japan. A cold place where meters of snow gather during a real long winter.

No snow in August anymore, but to make a long story short, I ended up walking 2 full days in torential water, very close to what you get in a shower really. I took 3 (yes three) images with the d2x, a few more with the Fuji F10 I was then carrying in my jacket pocket... that it is until it died just a few meters before the end point of the walk the second day.

The Fuji was one month old, and they refused to fix it although it was still under warranty...

So yeah, it is nice to see some bits of sun rise now and then.

Thanks for the nice words Ray.

Cheers,
Bernard
