Evening Light on the Remarkables

Nikon 28-300 Update

I think this is the 2nd or 3rd photo I have released that uses this lens with the zoom fully loaded… I still love this lens and use it about half the time. If you want to see more, see the full Nikon 28-300 review here on the site.

Daily Photo – Evening Light on the Remarkables

Misty and cloudy on the mountains… from this far away, it looks like a mist is blowing across the tops of the mountains. It makes it all appear more dramatic than perhaps it really is while you are there. But I guess there is this idea of relative drama. If you are actually there on the mountain, it’s probably quite mild and pretty. But, from way back here, dozens of miles away, it looks much more intense.

    Susan, you really must visit one day :-)
    I’ve got an HDR panorama coming up that shows this mountain range in all it glory just on sunset… They are as amazing as Trey has said time and time again!

    Great photo. Must be a great lens. I’m envious. But since I’m shooting a DX camera,(D7000) the FX 28-300 wouldn’t make sense. I do use the 28-200 DX lens and it takes care of 90% of my shots. Love glowing misty mountains.

    Wonderful shot Trey – I think it’s quite poignant of you to post a beautiful shot of one of New Zealand’s stunning landscapes… today marks the 1 year anniversary of Christchurch’s 7.1 magnitude earthquake!

    Great photo, very mysterious-looking with the glimpse of light shining through. I’m finding your work to be truly inspirational, thank you.
