I was taken aback by your photo of the Vermillion Cliffs area of Arizona. I have lived in Arizona for 7 years and visited the Grand Canyon a few times since we've been here - even driven up Route 89 to get to the eastern entrance to the park - but had never even heard of the Vermillion Cliffs.
Will make it a point to go there next time we are up that way.
Your photos are amazing. My wife and I love traveling and taking pictures which we blow up large (we have a few that are 6 feet around the house) but we are absolutely NOT "proper photographers" and certainly nothing like what you produce. Sensational. Thanks for sharing!
A couple of hours out of Bangkok, Thailand is a small village called Petburi.
It is the site of this wondrous underground cave that was turned into a Buddhist temple with hundreds of Buddhist statues. Wild monkeys run everywhere!
No, it was a standard Rodenstock 210MM I purchased in Switzerland from Sinar.
For this magnification it required two sets of bellows but otherwise no problems. I used a Broncolor Hazy Light bi-tube and with 4K of flash power it produced F90 at 1 meter so no problem with depth of field.
