Beautiful series Russ

That yellow really helps make the shot. And that 24-120 is a great lens for landscapes. I shoot 95 percent of mine with that same lens. Love it.

Thanks, Peter! Yep, it's hard to beat the versatility and value of that lens. Team it up with the 16-35 f4 and they make a great pair for landscapes. Besides those two, I have the 70-300 VR, and that's about all the glass I want to carry around.

Very nice location and images! I especially like the sixth one.
If I ever make the jump to FF, it looks like that zoom may be my walk-around travel solution.

Thanks, Robert! When I was shooting DX, my walk-around was the 16-85 VR. I consider the 24-120 f4 VR to be the FX equivalent of that lens. Both are the perfect walk-arounds for their respective formats.

Each and every one was my favorite until I saw the next! Wonderful palette of colors especially the different shades of the water as I assume you took them at different times of the day.
