Last evening I had the pleasure of meeting yet another photographer, this one uses a large format camera pretty much exclusively (4×5 inch negatives).
We had a good discussion about Turnagain Arm, and agreed it is close and convenient, it offers beautiful photo opportunities, and with the railroad and highway traffic, and the often brutal cold winds it can be quite inhospitable to the photographer. Nevertheless we were there, and shared a few moments together
Here he is preparing his Linhoff View camera for a shot, he got 2 shots in this spot,
quite an accomplishment really under these conditions with that camera setup.
This is looking west toward the setting sun and Point Possession.
Of course I got quite a few with my digital, this composition is looking south,
with the ice encrusted rocks of Beluga Point and the Seward Highway on the left.
It is a 3 frame panorama.
I am looking forward to excersizing my duty as an American to vote tomorrow.
The music I chose tonight is a favorite that was written some time ago and expresses long time I share.
