This is a blog of my occasional comments on all things photographic (making photographs, the photographic process, my photographs, etc.) and other related thoughts.

Conservation Center Photography Show -- New Point Comfort Virginia 2005
Traveling south in Virginia's tidewater region there is a spit of land that projects into the Chesapeake Bay, "New Point Comfort." The road ends where there is a wide vista of the water with old pylons and views of Mobjack and Chesapeake Bays. In this instance the clouds allowed the sun to shine through creating beams of light emanating from the sun and creating a tremendous bursting of light from the heavens that also reflected off of the water.
The image was made with Toyo 4x5 view camera and greyscale film. The image was printed with pigment ink on Hahnemülhe photo rag paper (308gsm weight). 20.0" x 15.6"
