Sunrise from Zumsteinspitz
Sunrise from Zumsteinspitze, on the way to Dufourspitze. July 1, 2004. This is a rescan with my new negative scanner of an older shot I took on the way to climbing Dufourspitz. The colors came out much better - I think it does the sunrise much more justice. By Howie Silleck.

Howie, You say you have a new scanner. I'm looking into replacing my aging HP Photosmart S-20 and was wondering what you have here? I want it for scanning my 35mm slides. The Epson V-700 gets good reviews and, of course the Nikon Coolscans. Thanks.

Fantastic shot, btw!

Hi Nelson - the scanner I recently purchased (second hand off of Ebay) is the Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Dual IV ... I've been really happy with the image quality, but the software and interface is a major pain. It's given me some real nice quality images from my older negatives and slides, but it seems like I've had to reinstall the software or restart my computer about every other time I use it. I don't have any experience with any other negative scanners, so I can't offer any helpful comparisons. Sorry!
Thanks for the kind words on the picture too!
Cheers,
Howie

Hi Howie, Thanks for the reply. Somewhere I read exactly the same thing about the Minolta scanner software. Well, it's doing a damn good job for you with your photos. Man, they are super!

I don't know if this was from the scanner:

Really nice!
Take care, Nelson

Hi again Nelson -
The picture you linked to is a newer image (digital from the start), not from the scanner. But I have found that the Minolta has done very well with pictures with a larger dynamic range - much better than I expected actually.
Thanks again!
Howie

Subtle though the colours are, the way they pool beyond the foreground is awesome. Take a deeper look and you see cloud shadows projecting across the pool created by the low sun. Not sure if I've ever seen that effect, but just great.

Then there is the floating mountain range up in the sky, complete with its own pointed summit.

Whatever nature can conjure up exceeds what the mind ever could.

...is one of the most awesome photos taken from the Monte Rosa I've ever seen! As mountainmanjohn said - it's almost unreal!
