A tree, a sunny day, a canyon, a 1937 folding Welta Weltur camera, a colored filter, 120 film shot in6x4.5 film, Ilford film, a Schneider Kreuznach Xenar 2.8 80mm lens. Such a delight to get back from the lab (even if I have to do a bit of cleaning up in LR)!
If you look closely, you will see there is blur in the image. I finally figured out that the way I was pressing the exposure button was the fault. I did it too quickly, and the result was a sort of little jerk. Motion and blur. That is why some pictures from this roll are sharper and others softer. Interesting how you have to really think about things differently depending on the camera you are using.
A few weeks ago when I was in a local open space, fire trucks and and ambulances were in the parking lot and along the street. Someone hiking had passed out or had been injured – I never found out the whole story. The park was not closed, so in I went. I heard the noise of a helicopter nearby. Deep in the canyon below came this medivac helicopter, a small craft capable of navigating in narrow canyons. It moved so quickly I was lucky to get this shot.
This was taken a few weeks ago while out on a hike through the local backcountry. Spring is fading away, and wildfires are already beginning to rear their flames. The plants here are more lush than they have been in some time – we had a bit of rain!

A touch of morning mist, and the hills beyond the gorge slowly fade away.
The view from the top of Mesa Verde into the canyons which surround it, and on to ranges beyond. Wanderlust to explore sets in!
I was out early this morning, not in a really good mood, but after looking at some of my photos, I realized I had a far better morning than I thought. Funny how the mind is . . .
A composite taken from multiple views – looking straight down into a canyon, as well as panning from side to side. The result is a rather distorted view, and does nothing to convey the sense of depth I wanted to capture. At the lower margin of the picture is the bottom of the canyon with two trails on either side of the creek. From there, up the walls of the canyon.
