Leica M9 in The Palouse
By Ashwin Rao – See his blog HERE
Hi, friends. My last article featured the Pentax 645D in the Palouse. As much as I was excited to try out a new friend, the 645D, on this trip, I brought along my long-term photographic muse, the Leica M9, for the ride. I continue to find the M9 to be the best camera for a wide variety of work. It is not often talked about as a landscape camera, but the M9 (and all M’s before it) can do a great job capturing nature and landscapes in a variety of lighting situations. Along with with the M9, I used the 21 mm f/3.5 Super Elmar, the 50 mm Summilux Asph, and the 135 mm f/3.5 APO-Telyt to the beautiful Palouse.
Here are some of the images produced using the lovely Leica M9 and these lenses. I hope that you enjoy them as a set to accompany my Palouse 645D article.
