Photographer: Justin Black Location: Scoresbysund, Greenland Equipment: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, FUJINON GF120mmF4 R LM OIS WR Macro, Singh-Ray LB Polarizing Filter Situation: Aboard the schooner Rembrandt van Rijn in Greenland’s vast Scoresbysund fjord system, our Visionary Wild expedition group set out to shore in the ship’s Zodiacs for a hike to a position overlooking the Rolige Brae Glacier. On the way, we came across one of the most magnificent icebergs I’ve ever seen, composed almost entirely of ancient deep-glacier ice. The sunlight sparkled, bounced and refracted as it penetrated the various fins, arches, horns and facets around the iceberg’s circumference. As the boats maneuvered, shutters clicked and exclamations of awe-struck incredulity were heard. This situation was ideal for the application of subtractive composition. The greatest beauty of the iceberg wasn’t in its full form,…

In the early days of interchangeable-lens digital cameras, 35mm-sized “full-frame” sensors were the holy grail. The reason for this at the time made sense: leading camera makers had extensive lineups of lenses designed for 35mm. Lenses for smaller-sensor cameras had to be developed, which meant fewer options compared to the decades’ worth of 35mm optics and required photographers to invest in new lenses. The camera market splintered. Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony (which purchased Minolta’s 35mm business) pursued both APS-C and full-frame format sensors, Fujifilm focused on APS-C, and Olympus and Panasonic teamed up on an all-new format, Micro Four Thirds. Mirrorless technology added a new hurdle as it required yet another new lens mount or adapters for older lenses. Let’s just say that the interchangeable-lens camera market got complicated. Fast…

Congratulations to the winners of The American Landscape 2019 photo contest. Featured here are the Grand Prize, Second Prize and Third Prize winners. See all of the finalists at outdoorphotographer.com/photo-contests/the-american-landscape. GRAND PRIZE Cliffs Of The Nā Pali Coast By Matt Meisenheimer “The cliffs of the Nā Pali Coast rise over 4,000 feet from the shoreline below. It’s a magnificent thing to see. The mountains of Kauai are some of the most unique out there. They give you the feeling that you’re living in a prehistoric environment that existed millions of years ago. “I ran into some phenomenal conditions while hiking around the Kalalau Valley during a recent trip. I scrambled to find a suitable composition and came across this scene. I liked how the lone tree was catching light, and I felt the rainbows were…

The best travel tripods strike a balance between their size when fully collapsed and their maximum height when extended. They’re compact enough to fit in your carry-on bag and light enough to take with you on a long hike without becoming a fatiguing burden. Here are 10 tripods designed for travel that check those boxes. REALLY RIGHT STUFF TQC-14 MARK 2 Though it’s the most expensive tripod on this list, in our experience, the quality of materials and construction of Really Right Stuff gear are worth the investment, and it’s made in the USA. We prefer the carbon fiber TQC-14 over the very similar TFC-14 because it includes an adjustable center column, while the TFC is a fixed-apex design.
