    Hi Thomas, not sure if you reply to posts on such old videos, but I wondered, how do you deal with hiking in the dark to get to a vantage point like that for sunrise – other than sleeping in and missing it 🙂

    Sorry, I am delayed with your vlogs…I must say that photo with the climbers is my favourite! This is my type of photos. Do you know the climber's names? Maybe some famous… :-))
    I´ve been several times in Geneva but not there…I am not a big fan of Alps but that glacier is beautiful!! You know, I´ve too many vertigos and that kind of landscapes cause me…
    Thank you so much for all your kindness, proficiency and sharing of knowledge.

    The thing I can't get over is, he actually walks ahead, plants a camera and then backtracks and then walks forward again like it's totally candid. Hiking some places is enough without going through all that. That's real dedication. And he won't be doing that at 40, so this is history so to speak. It will live on. Sometimes the journey is better than the destination.

    How is the 5DSr for landscape? Or do you recommend another Canon FF camera instead?

    I've been minding to ask for a while now. How do you know what filter to use (for the ND/ND grad)? And how do you read the lighting?
