Just about to post this one on the LF "Post Your Trees!" thread, but felt guilty about this MF image, so am starting another one here for smaller formats. At any rate, I'll start with mine...from our latest trip to Monhegan Island last August. After having spent a week of crystal clear days (aarrgghh!), the fog finally rolled in about an hour before we had to hop on the return boat. So I skipped breakfast, picked up my camera and sprinted over the top of the island to the eastern side. At any rate, here's one of a few I managed before the sun broke through (and I had to catch the boat!):

I find panos with a digital camera to be a modern equivalent to my LF work, in the sense that it takes planning and the following of a "process", not just snapping away.

Very nice. A bit jealous because I like that subject matter and place too, and have spent some time hurrying around out there but it didn't lead to great photos. I think some physical exertion leads to great photos because it gets the brain in gear.

Thanks JP...just the way I feel (a bit jealous) when viewing your ethereal tree branches - great use of those vintage lenses!

My wife and myself have been going to Monhegan for years...but I can never seem to hit it right for fog. One trip...again - after a week of clear blue skies, we were just departing on the boat when...in rolls an amazing fog bank - which had apparently settled in for days, but too many commitments prevented my timely return. Grrrr!

Very nice. Well done. This thread is a winner so far :)

I’d like to see Monhegan Island in person one day. George Tice did some awesome work there.

There was an article in the newspaper as few days ago, mentioning that walking was good for creativity.

Found on a drive home so I took a quick shot as I didn't have time. But it's worth a visit with better light and more time I think.

Igor (and all others),

I really enjoy the look of those, and of the images on your web page. I assume that the grainy look is due to enlarging 35 mm, but the "sparkly" effect, for lack of a better word, is due to the meniscus lens? What sort of lens could a person use on 4x5 to get such a look? I know nothing about antique lenses.

Thanks

Here’s a scene that will look familiar to H2oman.

We listened to the whisper of several mini-avalanches way up there. (Yes, those are my footprints before I selected my tripod location.)

Hi and thanks for your comments.
As for meniscus - it is the simplest lens you can make. Well, pinhole is even simpler , but pinhole has no glass.
Once you get adequate convex / concave lens you can use it with any format. I built mine 20 years ago from old Meyer 50mm lens
( leaving only front element ) and use it almost exclusively with 35mm film. I did try one for medium format, but did not like it.
There is a lot of information about it, just google for Meniscus Lens Photography.
Best wishes,
Igor

On 4x5, if you have a speed graphic or shutter otherwise, a reinhold wollaston meniscus or verito would be good. If you need something in a shutter, look for a imagon but don't use the strainer as that imparts the silhouette of the strainer to the highlight sparkles. Many other lenses will work if you remove some portion of the lens.

Yes the colour is real, this is in central Australia, admittedly using reflected light in a canyon.
