Re: Snow Monkeys at Jigokudani, Japan

Thank you!

It was cool to see them. They loved soaking in the hot natural spring water. And they would hang around there in the steam to stay warm even when they weren't in the water.

Nice photos. Good light on the fox. I like the donut boheh in the yellow weeds in the background of the fox photo.

Re: Where is everyone?

Nice photos from India!

I have been to India a couple of times (north and south) and would love to go again. Maybe after we get through this coronavirus pandemic.... :(

Very cool photos. That orange moon photo almost looks like a sun photo.

Re: A99-2

The Minolta 500F8 is definitely not a slow lens. :) Yes, these days with digital f8 is not as slow as it was with film. Shooting film I typically shot ASA 25, 50, 64, 100 for slide film and ASA 100, 200, and 400 with print film. Now with digital one can easily go up to high ISO and get great qualit...

Re: Snow Monkeys at Jigokudani, Japan

Thank you. Hard to believe that it took me exactly 50 years to get there. It is rather inconvenient because it is out of the way, far away from Tokyo and other big cities, and I wanted to go in winter when there is snow. In the winter when it is cold is when the mountain monkeys like to come down to...

You have to work with it. I liked the second one. I think first one would have benefited from a bracketed shot
or even built-in HDR feature of the camera.


Yes, the second one is my favorite too!

Snow Monkeys at Jigokudani, Japan

In January 2020 during the last trip we went on before the coronavirus pandemic hit we spent 3 weeks traveling in Nagano-ken in Japan. One of the places we went was to Jigokudani to see the Snow Monkeys. It had been exactly 50 years since I had first seen them in Life magazine and I always wanted to...
