    Hello from Humboldt County

    Hello!

    I have been posting this month, so it is time for an introduction!

    I have been photographing for about 30 years. After 12 years with the US Forest Service as a mulepacker/trail builder/fish counter/fire-fighter/outhouse cleaner, et al, I became the tech for the teaching darkroom (Art Dept) at a university...which I have been doing for the last 16 years. I have a BS degree in Natural Resources Mgt.

    I primarily use a Zone VI 8x10 and make platinum/palladium prints and carbon prints. I do a lot of work under the Redwoods and try to make it to Yosemite once or twice a year.

    I have attached an image of a platinum/palladium print in the next Post, having failed the first time. "Pine, Oak, Rock, YNP" taken with the above camera w/ a 300mm Fuji W f5.6 on Ilford FP4, developed in Ilford Universal PQ developer. Taken using the light reflecting off the granite walls just as the sun rose over the lower Yosemite Valley.

    Yes, Vaughn, I'm the Ilford Ralph's evil twin.

    Get around? I am a round, but I've been dieting.

    Welcome Vaugh. I used to live up there. Do you have problems with the webbing that grows between fingers and toes?

    No problem at all -- it helps me to swim as fast as the steelhead. Its the mold and fungus that grows in our enlarger lenses that bug me.

    Dunno if this is allowed, but I wonder if the image might look nice, cropped a bit tighter. It isn't 8x10 any more, and it's a bit more abstract. I hope this isn't rude. No offense meant. I just try to find the essence of the image. (Whether I succeed or not, is another matter).
