I've been working on printing the B&W shots... so far my favorites (which means I've gotten satisfactory prints) are #1 and #3... #2 doesn't have a lot going on in it, but if you're a climber the entire RNWF is in view, lit by the slanting rays... and #4 has a better Moon then #3, but too much of Half-Dome is obscured to provide the tension between "dark and light" that diagonals down the image from the top right corner to the lower left corner on #3.

...I've got an idea for #5, to crop it vertically, and for #6 where I can do a good job bringing the detail out in the deep shadows of the trees at the bottom of the picture....

Got to go on a suburban hike to acquire more ink...

the film has an unbelievable tonal range... and the 35mm format is blowing up to 12"x18" without much grain...

I'm having a lot of fun with these!

John, I had calculated positions for the Moon rise from Glacier Point Apron, and also from the Wawona Tunnel view, which were too far south for the shot I was looking for... I wasn't sure how well the Stoneman Meadow would be, but given the weather it was a great place....

I'll do some calculations for Feb... I have another photog project in the works anyway...

Jebus, Ed! How do you find the time to do this, edit your movies and still be a mad scientist?

I have always liked time to sit and just watch... and today was wonderful for that, 6 hours alone watching the clouds and light play on granite. I was just an observer waiting to see the magic.

And you say you don't meditate or have a spiritual life?

Don't worry, I won't tell anyone over on the Run to Dugout thread.

I'm not sure I ever said I didn't have a spiritual meditative side of my life...
...I think that is an inference people draw. I liked Karl's observations, but I don't think the outcome will be quite what Karl expects.
