Hamersley Ranges, Pilbara
This was shot last week on a trip to the Pilbara that Michael and I did. We were lucky to get to this cool spot and didn’t even know it was there until we climbed up a hill to get a view over a valley. Oh to have a heli to explore the Hamersley Ranges. You could get some of the best shots imaginable. It was freezing cold when we were up there and blowing about 30 knots. I had to hide behind a very thin tree to sheild the camera from the wind and the sun flare. I like the result.
Phase One 645DF, 150mm f/2.8, P65+.
Single image cropped to panoramic. Still almost 38″ wide at full res. Not bad and will push to 60″ easily, if not bigger.

Took this photo with Mark Stothard, Tommy Putt and Tony Middleton. What it doesn’t show was the apparent temperature, -2.2. It was a wee bit chilly, i.e Tommy being all rugged up. I only had an army shirt with the sleeves cut off as I don’t think -2.2 is really that cold. Still the P65 gives off a bit of heat when she is going flat out. When I’m shooting I’m running on pure adrenalin, it is UN-BELIEVABLE !!!
The old ND filter came in handy for this pic. Kept telling the boys the dynamic range of this scene was going to kill them. They kept telling me they were going to kill me if I didn’t shut up. Still you can’t argue with 12 stops of dynamic range. Ah yep, yep, yep, anyone else want to kill me?

I know this came out looking a bit like a Peter Eastway, must be because we both use the P65! Shot this image 5 times then blended the different focusing planes into one mother of a sharp image thanks to Helicon Focus. Going to print this one up tomorrow and take to the Phase One night being held at Team Digital. If you want to see the detail come along on the night.
Shot with the lovely Schneider 80mm with the p65+ and the 645DF
