Well for Christmas my wife gave me an LAEA3 for my A7RII.
I still have my old SAL70200g first gen lens. I havent used it for years.
We got lots of snow (for Oklahoma) so I decided to drag it out and try it. I didn't regret it, I am pretty happy with the results.

These were taken at Stanley Draper lake.

Winter (snow) pictures are a real nice change of pace. We just got 8 - 10 inches 2 days ago. I like the cleaner look of #2 best, but a red truck really stands out in the snow.

#2 also the standout for me and also very jealous of the truck, but it wouldn't fit on the roads round here!

Hi Roger,

I thought these were IR images until I saw the truck in the third one!

That looks very cold but, also, very beautiful as well; there is a crispness to the scenes that conveys the cold over there really rather well. If it were my images, I might be tempted to take some of the top of the first one - I suspect you want to keep that darker layer on the top of the image to keep the eye down in the frame, but you could take most of that off (just above those lovely clouds) and apply a Gradient to the image to lower the blue intensity to around the same level as the uncropped version. It might tighten the image up a little and bring the eye down into the tree line better. Just a thought.

And as for the truck - what a great contrast ("Add a splash of red to grab attention in an image" - and what a splash!). We saw many of those over in Utah last year and, whilst my wife thinks they are big, ugly brutes - I sort of have a hankering after driving one at least once before I finally can't drive any longer. I'll just have to make a 'mistake' when booking the rental car I guess... In terms of placement in the image I think it's great - for me, it makes the statement that it's intended to by GMC - tough and ready for any environment.

Thanks for sharing these and enjoy the weather and truck while you can!

Best regards, Neil.

The trees in #2 are just gorgeous - these are marvelous winter shots!

TFS!
