    150mm binocular lens on Speed Graphic, stopped down to f/50. Manually timed 4 second exposure. Preflashed Arista grade 2 paper negative.

    Unfortunately, it appears that the exposure of 4 seconds was a bit too much. I had to pull this and 2 other negatives out of the developer very early, to keep from getting too dark. This is the only one without streaks from incomplete development.

    I have been reading the book "Sights Once Seen" by Robert Shlaer, where he does modern day daguerreotypes in the Rocky Mtns, following Fremont's last expedition. He makes mention of using a UV filter on his plate camera lens, to help increase detail in the sky. This shot I made today of the Sandias appears to have lots of haze, too. Perhaps I'll try a UV filter. Attached files

    i'm fairly certain that an exhbition of those Dag's came to Pittsburgh a few years back. I saw it, it was spectacular.

    great work joe!

    I rather like the haze - it gives a greater sense of depth.

    Almost looks like you used infrared film - the grass glows.
