Five Minutes Of Beauty

Due to circumstances outside my control, shooting this morning’s fabulous sunrise was not an option. After dropping kids off at the elementary school, I took a few moments to climb a small hill overlooking the valley to take my first landscape shot with a new 28mm full-frame lens. A friend was driving by and saw me climbing up the hill and joined me for a moment. That made me smile. It was nice to stare at the scenery for a moment.

What also makes me smile is the amount of detail available in this photo. The new lens uses the full extent of the Sony a7r II’s full-frame 42.4-megapixel Exmor R back-illuminated structure CMOS sensor. (I copied and pasted that.) The amazing detail is hard to see at the size above, so I grabbed a small section of it to demonstrate.

Yes, that is from the same photo. This is not a different photo using a zoom lens. Crazy, right?
