This is one of the oldest shots that I still carry in my portfolio. Back in the mid-70’s, I camped regularly at a spot in upstate New York in the Catskill Mountains (actually, the Shawangunk Ridge. Really!) between the towns of Sundown and Peekamoose. The wilderness there was idyllic. At the time, it was primitive state land with a stream running through that started as small rapids and climbed to progressively higher waterfalls. The image was shot on a tripod with the lens stopped way down. Thus, the exposure was long, which always succeeds in giving water an ethereal quality.
I’ve kept my negatives well-protected over the years. Recently, I scanned this 2-1/4″ neg at very high-resolution (3,000 dpi) so I could process and print the image digitally, giving it new life.
