2004 – Misty Mountain

After all that rain we had an incredibly clear day.

I took this image of Villach’s most iconic landmark, the mountain “Mittagskogel” (“Noon Mountain” because it is exactly south of Villach at the border to Slovenia), using my Sigma 150/2.8. It’a an unwieldy combination, but on the Olympus E-P2 this lens really excels. I didn’t have to lug the lens around either, I just stood on our terrace.

The Song of the Day is “Misty Mountain Hop” from the 1971 fourth Led Zeppelin album. I’ve already used it in “1045 โ€“ Misty Mountains“. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. This is your view from your terrace???!!! How awesome and how fortunate you are to be living in such a beautiful place!

  2. Yeah, nice terrace view and great light!

    Andreas, what brand/type of lens adaptor are you using for the E-P2 and this lens?

    1. Two of them. One is a simple 40โ‚ฌ adapter without aperture control. I use it for those lenses that have an aperture control ring. The other is the obscenely expensive one from Novoflex. It has aperture control even for G-tyle lenses.

    1. Well, it’s only the crop seen through a 300 mm equivalent lens. But yes, it’s nice. It’s not a completely unobstructed view, but I see over most roofs ๐Ÿ™‚
