I received a new lens on Friday, so yesterday I headed up into the high country to test it out. The two lenses used were the Samyang 14mm F2,8 and Samyang 35mm F1.4. For those who haven't heard about them, they are two of the BEST lenses I have used for the money spent, bar-none. $339 for the 14mm and $379 (on sale at the time) for the 35mm. These are fully manual lenses, so that might be a negative for some, but not for me, I prefer it.

Anyway on to the photos. These were taken in the Indian Peaks Wilderness, mostly along the Isabelle Glacier trail. This is an absolutely beautiful place for a hike, and not too bad an area to test out lenses

Fantastic shots.

Great price on the lenses too, your photos make me want to check them out more than any written review ever could.

Glaciated mountains have rounded valleys, not sharp v's. Look at Glacier National Park.

Thank you everyone. I enjoy sharing my photography, otherwise, why do it?

Awesome photos! I have an older Samyang for a Canon film camera that does pretty good.

I hiked down these same trails back in the 70's as a kid. The water off the glacier was some of the coldest, and sweetest I ever had.

Yeah, the water is nice and cold, although these days I don't drink directly from the streams (unless I am REALLY thirsty).

Thanks again everyone!
