On this hike, I carried just my 5DMII, a 27-70 f2.8, polarizer, and Grad ND filters. With such a great sky, I did miss my 16-35. This was shot handheld at 24mm, ISO 320, 1/60th at f/4.
Santa Cruz Island - looking northwest from the top of the MontaÃ±on Ridge. In the spring this is a classic hike. It is a long steady climb from Scorpion Harbor, and a long walk along ridge tops to Prisoner's Cove. I was fortunate to be out on a day with an incoming storm front, which gave me great clouds and let me shoot at mid-day.
