Building floating on the cloud in Dubai

A surprising beautiful fog appeared in front of my hotel window on the next morning when I arrived in Dubai this January. I immediately asked for permission to the hotel top to capture this photo.

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Alpamayo—Perfect by Nature” by Harry Lichtman. Location: Cordillera Blanca, Peru.

“While trekking in Peru’s Cordillera Blanca portion of the Andes, I was able to capture the 4,000-foot face of 19,511-foot Alpamayo, one of the world’s most beautiful mountains,” says Lichtman. “The triangular portion of the summit is ominous yet beautiful at the same time. The early morning sidelight helped bring out the textures of the glacier and blowing snow.”

Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2

Snake River sunrise taken with the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2
Sunrise on the Snake River, Grand Teton National Park. Nikon D750, Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 @ 24mm. Exposure: 2 secs., ƒ/22, ISO 100.

In the fall of 2015, Tamron began introducing new versions of popular lenses with upgraded construction and ergonomics. It began with several primes (35mm, 45mm, 85mm and 90mm) and then zooms as well, starting with the SP 150-600mm F/5.6-6.3 Di VC USD G2, followed by the SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 and now the newest G2 lens, the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A032).

A Di-series lens, the new 24-70mm is designed to be used with full-frame sensor cameras, but can also be used with APS-C systems, providing an equivalent focal range of approximately 36-105mm when attached to the latter.

Available in Canon and Nikon mounts, at $1,199, it’s priced very competitively against the options available from those camera makers. Canon’s ƒ/2.8 offering, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, retails for about $1,749 and doesn’t include image stabilization. Nikon has two ƒ/2.8 models, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm F2.8G ED that sells for around $1,799 and the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR that includes stabilization for $2,399. Tamron’s Vibration Compensation system is CIPA-rated to provide up to five stops of correction, beating Nikon’s four stops—noteworthy for a lens that’s half the price.

As we’ve observed in reviews of other G2 Tamron lenses like the SP 70-200mm F/2.8 G2, the material and construction upgrades are very nice. The metallic barrel, rubber grip zoom and focus rings, and generously sized autofocus and Vibration Compensation switches add up to an ergonomic experience that’s satisfying and feels premium. The lens also features six weather seals to protect against the elements, and another nice durability feature is the fluorine coating on the front lens element that repels oil and water, making it easier to clean when needed.

Early fall colors, R Lazy S Ranch, near Grand Teton National Park. Nikon D750, Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 @ 70mm. Exposure: 1/80 sec., ƒ/14, ISO 1000.

We had the opportunity to bring the lens with us on a recent trip to Jackson, Wyoming, for the Summit Nature Photography Workshop, photographing in and around Grand Teton National Park. We were impressed with both the image quality and the responsiveness of the lens’ autofocus with our Nikon D750. Among the improvements from Tamron’s previous generation 24-70mm is a “dual MPU control system.” One MPU (micro-processing unit) is dedicated to controlling the lens’ Vibration Compensation system, and the other is dedicated to autofocus. The result of providing dedicated processors for these tasks, according to Tamron, is more precise AF and consistent stabilization performance—presumably a key factor in the Vibration Compensation system’s five stops of correction versus four stops in the previous generation of this lens.

Overall, we found the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 to be an excellent value, with its fast, constant ƒ/2.8 maximum aperture, advanced stabilization, solid construction and competitive price.

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Gods Descending” by Tanmay Sapkal. Location: Keyhole Arch, Pfeiffer Beach, California.

“For a few weeks each year during the winter solstice, the sun casts an ethereal glow through Keyhole Arch on Big Sur’s Pfeiffer Beach at sunset that is absolutely breathtaking,” says Sapkal. “This natural phenomenon doesn’t have fixed dates, but the prime time for the best light is early January, with good-to-great light occurring from around December 15, 2017, until January 20, 2018. When I arrived at the spot, some 45 minutes before the sunset, the place was packed with fellow photographers. I joined the end of the line as everyone scrambled to get a shooting angle. I was disappointed, feeling that I would not get a shot worth keeping, but I waited around and kept shooting long after people started leaving. To my luck, the sky blew up, creating these intense colors.”

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including Assignments, Galleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.

after erathquake 3

Hundreds were killed and thousands were injured after a 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit border region between Iraq and Iran.

Sarpole-Zahab was hit the hardest; leaving the city without running water, food, electricity, medical assistance, and other basic needs. Hospitals are working out of tents as its patients lay on the streets. Land where homes once stood are nothing more than rubble and dust, leaving families homeless and helpless, Nov 2017

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Heavenlands” by Tammy Neufeld. Location: Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

“The last rays of a November sun at the iconic Snake River Overlook in Grand Teton National Park,” describes Neufeld. “The early, cold evenings of winter are often magnificent for photography. I love catching those last moments of light, waiting for twilight to rise, especially in the off-season quiet of Grand Teton. After the hectic crowds of summer, you can hear yourself think again as you often have the views to yourself.”

Camera: Nikon D5500
