    Mist meet Helios - 268/365 - 2017

    An early morning shot alongside the Yukon River. Fall has brought cooler nights which means mist rising off the warmer water of the Yukon River.

    If you`re out and about early enough, there can be some beautiful sights for the photographer. In this case, I only had the OM-D E-M1, the Zhongyi Turbo II adapter and my 58mm Helios 44-2 with me so I made do with that. The result is a little soft, especially at the edges, but whether this is an attribute of the Helios, or of the Zhongyi, or both, I do not know. I do like the result though; and ultimately, those optics may have been a good choice, capturing the feeling of the misty morning quite well.

    Cloud's Anvil

    Best (as ever) on black.

    My first (and certainly not last) visit to Tombstone Territorial Park. I hiked and pushed through a heck of a lot of willow bushes to this secluded little pool looking back toward Talis Lake and the huge unnamed mountain behind it. I camped right across the lake from this beautiful giant, and that made it way easier to capture this kind of incredible sunset.

    Randy meet Helios

    I pulled out my other Helios today. This one is a more common Vodlai made Helios 44-2 with a maximum f/2.0 aperture and 58mm focal length.

    Today seemed to be a great day for dog portraits. Walking in the woods, I managed to get a very nice shot of my little buddy, Boots, and then also got a rather nice shot of my friend's dog, Randy. While the light was quite flat overall, we managed to get Randy to pose in a sport where a little stream of bright found its way into the forest. The result was some wonderful swirly bokeh in the typical style of the Soviet Helios lens design.

    Boots meet Helios - 267/365 - 2017

    I pulled out my other Helios today. This one is a more common Vodlai made Helios 44-2 with a maximum f/2.0 aperture and 58mm focal length.

    Heading for a walk in the woods, I managed to get a great shot of my little buddy, Boots the dog. I don't think that the swirly bokeh is as pronounced with this Helios as it is with my 44-2m made by MMZ, but it also seems a slightly sharper lens in normal use. Of course, the lighting conditions were very flat on this day and more testing will need to be done.

    A seal feasting on a salmon along the shores in Skagway.

    This capture took place as we were returning from the Yukon as we were approaching our ship. Thousands of salmon and many seals and sea lions feasting on the opportunity. This time frame was approaching peak season for the salmon as they returned to spawn.

    From the gravel shores along Tutshi Lake. A stop along the Klondike Highway in the Yukon.

    As we traveled to the far end of Tutshi Lake, located on the Yukon, we had the opportunity to stop along the gravel shores to capture a view back toward the West in which we came. I did slightly strengthen the gray areas in the sky, but please trust me when I say that this image, compiled from three separate images is a very close rendition of the actual day. It was so beautiful oddly with the weather setting a very surreal landscape.

    Narrow gauge rails along the Klondike highway.

    This was a simple capture at one of our stops near the Canadian boarder. The rail is currently used to take tourist through the Yukon, finishing at White Pass Summit. It is an engineering marvel considering the timeframe in which the rail was built. During the gold rush this rail system was built along cliffs and through mountains in only two years. No chance of that happening in today’s world.

    Magical Moment

    Another fall shot with the Helios and Zhongyi adapter.

    On this day, instead of carrying the big bag with a selection of lenses, I took only the OM-D E-M1 with the Helios and Zhongyi adapter. This forced me to find compositions with a single focal length - a creative exercise that worked out well, I think.

    For this image, I had to get down low to the surface of the water. the Helios was focused on one of the branches in the middle of the image. I was aiming for the stump coming out of the water but was off slightly and found my focus on the branch just behind it. The result turned out to be sort of magical, I think.
