Pic(k) of the week 15: NEMRUT CRATER, TURKEY - aerials with the Fujfilm X-T2

As, I'm presently working on an article for Fujilove magazine (June edition) about my Aerial photography with the Fujifilm X-series, I first wanted to share a recent birds-eye view of a snowy Turkey with the blog-readers.

The image below shows a dormant volcano near Lake Van in eastern Turkey; a beautiful site which we often overfly on the flights between Dubai and Central Europe. Especially in winter time the scenery is often breathtaking!

Image details:
  • Fujifilm X-T2 with the XF35mm f2 lens
  • ISO 200, f8.0, 1/1400s
  • RAW development in Lightroom CC
  • Nik ColorEfex Pro 4 for optimal contrast
Before some clever pixel peeper comments on the softness of some parts of the image.... this image is shot through several layers of an airliners window; the softness is the direct result of the this, not of the lens! But remember: "There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept" - Ansel Adams.
