E-M1, 12-40 and Rokinon FE tag along on 28 mile, 30 hour volcano bumrush.
2 months ago

Hello everyone,

I was fortunate, or crazy enough (I'd say both) to have a brief window with my favorite climbing partner, so we made an attempt to climb to the summit of the island I live on and get back in under 30 hours.  This includes a bushwhack through a long, nasty bog, some meandering around alpine meadows, and then a climb up a broad, 6,000 foot volcano on snow, ice, and pumice.

Anyway, considering how hard we were pushing, I didn't have tons of time to stage shots, or get perfect settings.  Note how many of them feature the backside of my buddy.  Some of these images could certainly have been executed better.  But overall, after this whole experience, I can't imagine what rig I would prefer attached to me and ready to go over so many miles, rough terrain, and changing weather and lighting conditions.  Ok, I do miss my EM-5 just a little for this, but I couldn't afford to keep them both.

Feel free to critique or comment on anything, like the last shot not being pixel-perfect for example.  Thanks for looking,

Wally

A few miles of squelching bog, and someone's imagination was getting the better of him.
