    Indeed, the perspective can be a bit dizzying! I like getting into the scene though, and to me sometimes a more "normal" wide-angle, like a 90mm, seems to be much more static.

    You might be right on the horizontal, oops .

    Just waiting on the local lab to process the film but it should look something like this:

    The more I look at this the more it moves me. Instead of the typical soft water shot, this conveys such power and strength. Exceptional.

    Thanks, Aldo, for the image of me (he's on the far right). Cropping and conversion to B&W was my fault.

    Re: The Setup and the Shot

    Here is one from this summer, on a ridge leading up to Cream Puff Peak. This peak is on the south edge of the Gros Ventre Mtns. in NW Wyoming. The scene is a re-take of an historic image by Eliot Blackwelder, an exploration geologist. There are three geologic-formation contacts in the scene, which is interesting to a geologist (I'll spare the details). I am re-visiting these places to assess long-term changes in vegetation, with an eye towards wildlife habitat. This is within bighorn sheep habitat. There was not much change over the last 110 years, and many of the individual shrubs were there in 1910, as well as the dead branch leaning in from the right, for example. If anyone is interested in the historic pairing, I can post it in the Tripod Holes thread.

    His image was taken on July 27, 1910 (not shown), while mine is from July 26, 2020, with similar shadows. My wife took the picture of me. The stand-point is at the edge of a cliff, and I am holding the original scene to match-up the re-take. The re-take in on 4 by 5 Ilford Ortho Plus, using a 121 mm F8 Schneider-Kreuznach SA. Blackwelder tilted his camera more than usual, and my re-take does not quite cover it, as I always level the camera in the 2-D plane. Blackwelder used a Kodak 3A Pocket Folding camera.

    The best rendition of moving water I have seen in many a year, wonderful.
