Adirondack Fall with the Nikon D750 and Nikkor 20mm f/1.8

Adirondack Fall with the Nikon D750 and Nikkor 20mm f/1.8 by Jonathan Zaharek (Instagram, website)

My name is Jonathan Zaharek and I am professional landscape photographer. I've been doing this for about three years and professionally for one year. Every photograph below was taken with the Nikkor 20mm f 1.8. As I reflect on these photos, I would say with a full frame camera, 20mm is a very awkward range in between wide-angle and not, especially for landscape photographers. Some of these photos I found it necessary to stitch multiple frames together because the lens was just not wide enough. Indeed, 20mm is wide, but not quite wide enough for most situations. I chose to purchase the lens,however, because of its 1.8 aperture.  I specialize in astrophotography as you can see on my website. So, let’s begin!

Earlier this year, I had the privilege of posting to this Forum Europe with the Nikon D7100. This time, I would like to share with you my experience in the Adirondack Mountains for the fall season, 2016. I've been traveling to the Adirondacks my entire life (19 Years). I normally spend around two months of the summer  there, but for the past two fall seasons, I've had the ability to return and be situated there for the two years off-and-on. What better place to be on planet Earth than in the Adirondack Mountains during the fall! It offers some of the most spectacular, vibrant, colors of any park found in the United States. With 6 million acres of park, there's so much to see in so little amount of time. The following photos are a sampling of what you might find.
