End of the Road

End of the Road

Thank you all for looking in for "Winter! No Thanks!" and special thanks to KBan (Keith) Myrab (Myra) and ChristineD (Christine) for their greatly appreciated UA's.

Something more academic today--- I drove out nearer the mountains-- this is the end of "Bear Hollow Rd." where it meets Roxbury Rd. , parked in the middle of the road and made some hand held shots of the farm at "The End of the Road." (long before the wind and snow) Again, this is a reduced opacity black and white image---

This image show a typical Pennsylvania farmstead. One of these days I will get a proper landscape lens, just can't decide which one…. suggestions welcome.

This is personal, a human landscape.

This is such an appealing image, Jenn.
The composition and the way the light of the foreground stands out so well against the mountains - excellent.

Still liking the subtle colouring - I used to make everything bright and shiny
so this shows great control and vision.

I love the light and the way you framed this shot, Jenn. Excellent shot and so impressive. I'd recommend a super wide, a Sigma 10-20mm lens for Nikon.

Nice light. As for a proper landscape lens, why don't you hire before you buy?

So very typical of the Pennsylvania countryside. I think you have done a beautiful job. I like my 50mm lens for many things, but I have an 18-55mm that works really nicely for landscapes. It gives you a slightly broader choice of composition. The light in this is lovely, and reminds me of some of the Wyeth works.

The end of the road... thinking of your pm... a good one for a day like this.
This is showing my image of America, what I have in mind, when I'm thinking of your country.
Hope to see it someday.

A very nice scene, Jenn!Smile

This lens is designed for cameras with a crop factor. It will give a noticeable vignetting on your Nikon D800. It seems to me that the Sigma AF 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Nikon F is the best option in your case.

Nothing wrong with the lens you've got to produce images like this. A mid-range zoom would make life easier though. I use a 24-105 (full frame Canon) for the majority of my images with a 17-40 if I absolutely have to go wider but I'm not that keen on the visual distortions that wide. You don't need to worry about super fast lenses either as you'll be looking for more not less dof in most instances.
