Re: Creating the Impossible with Unusual Focal Length : SHOW YOURS!

This was done with the 40-150 @ 150mm on an E-PL2.  It was taken from the valley floor on Hwy 395 in California looking up into the Sierra peaks in King's Canyon Nat'l Park during a late afternoon snowstorm.  The lens f.o.v. eliminates any perspective clues and makes it look as if the camera is at the same level as the peaks (I've been asked "Where WERE you when you took that!"). 
Looking at a map, I'm estimating that the peaks are somewhere between 10 and 15 miles distant.  I'm not sure exactly which peaks these are, but according to the map the highest in that area are over 13,000 and 14,000 ft.  The camera was hand-held but braced on top of a fence post in strong gusty wind.
