    This is a nice one Jim, and I know that this is more difficult to do than what appears.

    And here is one of my trees, another one that I found interesting. It's shot with the Ilex Paragon 165mm lens on 13x18cm Fomapan 100 - the lens I have on offer in the F/S section.

    I don't know if I told you already Jiri (I have a touch of old-timers), but I do like your work.

    Dear Greg,

    Merci...

    It's funny that you say the word difficult regarding this image, but this image was very difficult for me for another reason, because I have a terrible fear of spiders, and I encountered a mean big nasty arachnid, just before I took the exposure.

    As I removed my head from beneath the dark cloth after making my final focus adjustment, my eye caught a long shiny string of wavy light heading off to the tops of the Fir trees on my left, where the one inch ribbon seemed to be made of thin transparent silk. I remember asking myself what that could possibly be floating in my direction on the light evening breeze, and I remember that I could not stop thinking about how long the ribbon happened to be. The ribbon looked as though it was fifty or sixty meters long. As I placed my head under the dark cloth one last time to see whether the composition was lined out properly, I was immediately presented with a hazy image of a monstrous spider on my ground glass that scared the absolute crap out of me. I mean it looked huge...

    I quickly backed from the camera, and noticed that this wavy band of silk had wrapped itself around my dark cloth, and the camera, so I walked underneath the band and looked at the lens on the front of the camera. A large angry spider in a reared defensive posture, with its forelegs outstretched, sat on top of my lens daring me to approach, so I did just that, and knocked the damn thing into next week.

    I loaded the film, hoping that the spider was not as fast as he looked, clicked the shutter, and promptly left.

    I always seem to remember what happens to me as I take an image, so I always have a story, or two to tell the patrons that are looking at my images.

    I still shudder when I think of that moment...

    I was noticing more how you kept the Zone III in check without blowing the highlights, but GIGANTIC MAN EATING spiders are an issue too. Especially in the North Woods. Funny story... sorry to hear about your aracnidphobia. I was once photographing a very nice spider web with water drops in the sunlight at 1:1 when this hairy beast dropped into my sight causing me to fall back to the deck.


    (A lot of people think they are seeing Sasquatch but it's really those giant spiders. lol lol )
