Southern Yosemite from Mt. Diablo
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Using a 200mm telephoto lens on the full from canon 5d 21mp camera with a 1.4x extender (effective 280mm) on a relatively clear day (not the clearest ever), I was able to get remarkable clarity of Yosemite from 130-150 miles away (depending on the peak you are looking at). I've added a bunch of contrast in photoshop to get the peaks to stand out, so this isn't exactly natural light, although the photo was taking about 30 mins before sunset so the reddish alpenglow on the snow is real.
I've ID'ed a few peaks, and if you'd like to add to the IDs let me know! I have more pics I will post later of northern yosemite and sonora (where I am able to ID Dana, Conness, Tower, Leavitt, Relief, Sonora, Stanislaus...).
