      For the gearheads: what equipment do you use?

      Well, if I could just click my eyes, process a photo in my head and then have it printed out ...

      My camera is the Nikon D700, which seems to be ideal for landscape photography. Full frame sensor, true wide angle, noise free high ISO and a tank-like but compact body allows me to enhance my creativity much more than all my other Nikons before it. Landscapes have many extremes of light which the D700 has the tonal range to handle--plus holding up the physical aspects of the terrain and weather quite well.

      My primary use lens is the Nikon 14-24 2.8. This has got to be one of the best wide angle out there. Shoot at any aperture, shoot in poor lighting. Just go for it! Wide angles are so compelling IMO. People complain that you cannot place filters in front of this lens. Why would you want to? The nano coated lens does just fine in most extremes. Besides, I tend not to use filters and use only NDs for extremely slow shutter speeds. My other lenses include the 80-200 2.8, 60 prime 2.8 and the 50 prime 1.4. One day I would love to have the 24-70 2.8.

      They are all just tools however. Gotta have the eye man!
