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 -- Blue Ridge Branches, Virginia 1967
This image was made while I was a graduate student in physics at the University of Virginia. I had hiked up to the top of a ridge from the Skyline Drive in the southern section of the Shenandoah Nation Park when I encountered these branches on an otherwise treeless ridge. I made several images of the stark branches against the clear sky.
The image was made with a Calumet monorail 4 x 5 view camera and printed with pigment ink on Hahnemülhe photo rag paper (308gsm weight). Image size 15.5" x 20.0".
