Day 179: Merrimack West


I picked up a new Lee Filter adapter for my Olympus 7-14 ultrawide lens. The lens has one of those bulbous front elements that doesn’t allow for screw in filters, making it impossible to screw on the Lee foundation kit. With the adapter, which fits snugly around the barrel of the lens, I can snap on the foundation kit with no problem.

My previous solution was a third party 3D printed thing. It worked OK but it requires you to attach it separately each time you use it. And attaching it was a pain in the ass. Plus, the light-proof seal between the unit and the lens barrel was starting to deteriorate.

This Lee solution lives on the lens, making it easier to transition to long exposure. It adds a little weight and bulk to the lens, but is aluminum, so that is not really a big deal.

Anyway, today’s shot is nothing more that a quick test shot. By quick, of course, I mean a 4 minute long exposure.

What is this, some kind of series?

Yes, it is! Throughout 2017 I’m attempting to take a new image every day and post it to this blog. Ambitious, I know. Success is not guaranteed, but I’ll give it my all. You can see all of the images below. Just click on a thumbnail and flip through them.
