I found this video a while back wanted to share it here. For anyone who does not know, John Muir was a Scottish-American naturalist and founder of the Sierra Club.

 

While visiting Puerto Varas in southern Chile I had the chance to travel around Lake Llanquihue, one of Chile’s largest natural lakes. The almost romantic fishing culture around Lake Llanquihue is a lifestyle quickly becoming extinct. The volcano pictured below is Osorno, one of the most active volcanos in the southern Chilean Andes.

I have spent the tail end of last year and a chunk of this year shooting in parts of California, Chile and Antarctica, which is the primary reason for my lack of activity. The plan is to share some of my experiences on this blog in the upcoming weeks.

I have also re written the code for this blog from scratch, which should allow me to update it in a more efficient manner. Please e-mail me if you encounter  bugs with the readability of the posts.

Some images shot around the new year in California’s Death Valley and Red Rock Canyon:

I’m busy packing for a holiday trip but wanted to post some samples shot with the Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 Zeiss on the A7R. I just received the lens this past Thursday so my time spent with it is very limited. I’m going to have a lot more images from this as well as the other shipping FE lens (the 35mm f2.8) when I return.

My initial impression of the lens is very positive. It’s one of the sharpest lenses I have used wide open, and is worth every penny. Build quality is great and despite it’s apparent size balances very well with the camera. It’s very cold here in Canada and the following few images were shot this Sunday between some last minute pre departure shopping.

Also, check out some of my observations on the Sony A7R itself: https://blog.dominik.ca/2013/12/09/sony_a7r/
