I took a walk around the legendary Alabama Hills outside of Lone Pine, CA today. This area is famous as being a backdrop for many wonderful western movies throughout the years, and even as recently as Iron Man and Transformers. The place is wonderful, and just packed full with all kinds of photo opportunities. I do not have ANY exposure data on these pictures. Until I can figure out how to view Exif data in my image files I just dont have the information. I can tell you that most of the landscapes were shot through a 14-42mm lens, using a split Neutral Density filter, and the closeups were shot through a 40-150mm lens, some with the split Neutral Density filter, some without.
