descending hillside of globe gilia


peace valley ca 2003

Second to wind, scattered clouds rank as a landscape photographer's next worse headache. With the clouds playing havoc on my light meter, I switched to vivid agfa ultra reversal film for its wider exposure latitude. A 4 minute break in the clouds allowed low angle sunlight to give a pastoral glow and nice modeling to this blanket of globe gilia, fiddlenecks and poppies.

This print film gives the photo a certain color spectrum that works nice here. Canon T-90, canon 50mm3.5/sky, f-22, agfa ultra
