Loch Lomond is a beautiful loch, and I love to stop there on my way from Glasgow to Glencoe & the Isle of Skye, when I have a chance. Here a sunset on the Loch, a 1/5 second photograph taken in 2018 with my (then) Leica SL, Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters:

Very nice shot. I passed by Loch Lomond in the early 1980s going from Glasgow towards Isle of Skye on my tandem bicycle. Just took the time for a couple of quick snapshots on my Leica CL (film). We toured on our own for 10 days before catching our Braniff flight back to Texas. Braniff had stored my "tandem box" behind their ticket counter while we were there. I haven't been back to Scotland since. Too old for cycle touring now... but I do have Scots family heritage, and would love to go back.

Another beautiful shot Vieri.

Whenever I drive north passing Loch Lomond I get a strong feeling that I am heading home, not that I have ever found any Scots family heritage (yet!).

Thank you very much indeed, Graham! :) I do share your feelings about driving past Loch Lomond - while I am very Italian, I always feel really at home when in Scotland - my wife keeps telling me that I am really a nordic in disguise!

Thank you very much Tom, glad you enjoyed the shot! :) Thank you very much also for sharing your story!

      Hello! I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like there is no generic open thread for landscape photography. There are a couple of Australian and New Zealand landscape threads, sunsets. And many specific threads containing the word "landscape." But I didn't find one more generic like the "I like film" thread (to say one).
      So, I thought it was interesting to have all an inspiring open thread for general landscape photography. Admins, please correct me if I'm wrong, edit the title. I'm IN anyway to be inspired by landscape photos taken with M cameras (digital and film). 🙂
       
      I start with this picture I took yesterday during the super full moon night. It was very bright.

      I have a question about choosing the right 28 mm M lens for landscape photography. If it has been asked in other posts already, I apologise in advance.
      Background
      I have decided to buy a 28mm for my M240. It will be used for landscape photography almost exclusively.
      For the first time in my life, I am leaning towards an Elmarit ASPH. However, I always have this nagging inner voice telling me, that Summilux and Summicron are the only ways to go no matter the situation.
      So before buying, I want to make sure that I will not be compromising on any key aspects important to me with an Elmarit. And since I live in a place where trying different lenses before buying is not an easy alternative, I turn to all you skilled Leica experts in here for advice.
      My needs
      I will be shooting at apertures between f/8 - f/11 most of the time. And I will only rarely be focusing on objects very close. So I am not that concerned about bokeh (which I guess is not that relevant for a wide-angle lens anyway).
      The same thing goes for color rendering, since I’m shooting digital and will be postprocessing the RAW files anyway.
      However, I am very interested in achieving good sharpness from corner to corner. And I am also concerned about the handling of lens flare.
      Question
      Do you think the Elmarit ASPH will be the right choice for my purpose? Or will the 28mm Cron or Lux in any of their incarnations perform noticeably better under the above circumstances?
      Reading lots of reviews, both the Cron and the Lux obviously outperforms the Elmarit for low light situations. But will there be differences in image quality, sharpness and flare handling when stopping down to f/8 - f/11?
      Any input will be much appreciated. Thanks!
      - Peter.
