tvstaff: I shoot in heavy winds and need the old fashioned Gitzo tripod that can hold 60 pounds and you can weigh down with 15lb sandbags on each leg. That's just for my flash <ROFL>

TV, saw your gallery, nice shots. I just imagined you walking on the beach pulling a cart with your equipment, 4 tripods, flashes, cameras, sandbags (full - ;o) ), barbecue pit and all… I'm having a great start of the day laughing…
But I get it, you gotta do what you gotta do and use the equipment that gets you the shot that you want.

TVstaff, funniest post I've seen in a long time…
On a serious side, while I like CF tripods myself, what am I gonna do with a $389 tripod that only can take 4Kgs? Put my iPhone on top?
But it has a nice Formula 1 inspired design, eh?

On photo THE View 2012 7886 in the Old and Abandoned Barns - Colour Only challenge (4 comments in total)

Matyszyk, thank you for the comments.

The barn is actually abandoned. It is currently part of the National Park Service and Grand Teton National Park. The barn is not used for animals or storage of any kind and has had no maintenance work ever since it became a part of the NPS. It is, however, an incredible photo location, probably making it the most photographed barn in the world.

In July 2013, the Jackson Hole community and NPS celebrated 100 years side "the barn" was built. The descendants of the original owner, Thomas Alva Moulton, were present for the celebrations. In order to maintain the barn (which has been really falling apart over the last few years), donations were accepted, but, at least as of know, no maintenance work has been done yet.

I've been visiting the area for 11 years and plan to return for many more. This picture was taken by my 12 years old daughter next to me in 2012. She was using my old D70.

More info can be found by google-ing "the Moulton Barn".

Over the years I ended up deciding that less is more. Can't go hiking in the mountains or the slots with all this stuff on my back.

In reply to:

omoise: I am a little confused here. Is this challenge about the true "Alpenglow" as GR described it, or are any sunsets/sunrises accepted? After looking at all the submissions, I'm starting to believe I got the theme wrong...

Martin, thank you for your very kind words. Galen Rowell was always one of my favorite photographers.
Frank, may I ask who is the quote from?
I will adjust my ratings according to this discussion. I agree that in the larger meaning, they all qualify now for the theme.
Great work, everyone!

That's why I asked about the GR vision of "Alpenglow" because that referred to light reflected on the peaks right before or during sunrise or during and right after sunset.
But no biggie, nice pictures anyway.

Believe me, so would have I... even with the pond, I ha constantly in mind where the car was (not that close) and what other options I had. But I'm grateful for the long lens indeed...

I would add the Giottos, incredibly versatile and solid for the price.
And i would love to see some stability comments.
