Art and the art of photography

First Light, Lone Pine Peak, Mt. Whitney and the Alabama Hills.

This is one of the premier photographic areas in the west, in my opinion, and maybe anywhere else as well. I had the chance to be in the area the first week in December of 2009. A huge snow storm had moved through the day before I got there which was a great stroke of good fortune. This photograph was made just before sunrise. I used a Toyo 45A camera and a 150mm Sinaron-S lens with a dark orange filter and Tri-X black and white film

  1. Just beautiful! Especially the glow in the sky over the distant mountains and the contrasts in light and textures from front to back.
