When I arrived upon this location, I had no idea how the morning would turn out. Nonetheless, I set up my camera with this composition and waited. Over the course of an hour or two, the skies remained overcast and gray, and it even snowed on me for a brief time. While I waited, I began to think that the morning was going to be a bust without any good shots. But slowly, the clouds thinned and the sun started to cast it’s light on the landscape. My excitement grew with the potential possibilities.

As the scene developed, I exposed my first sheet of film, but quickly realized that I set my shutter speed incorrectly. Instead of double exposing the film to correct, I flipped the holder and exposed my only remaining sheet of Velvia 50. I’m very pleased with the final image, but I must confess that the transparency has a severe magenta cast due to its age, which is more than 15 years old. This image was photographed with a Toyo 8×10 view camera on Fuji Velvia 50.
