Impressive, but I think you should have sprung for the color version.

Sorry, color was not an option at the time. :mrgreen:

Thanks Jeff you have "peaked" my interest. :)

Awesome!
How long did you have to expose the film to get the fluffy water effect?
So long and thanks for all the fish!

That's really nice Jeff!

I like how the whole photo is crystal clear, but the water is blurry and almost like a ghost. That would be something I would hang on my wall. Just cool!

I'd have to dig out my notes, and they are quite buried, I think. Going by my "standard" procedure, which is f32 as my standard F stop for most of the 4x5 photography, and given that this was made with a 90/8 Super Angulon, probably around 2 seconds (again, I'd have to check my notes, this was late afternoon so I may have used my ND.6 filter to cut down some of the light entering the lens). The hike up to this was a trip, if you are familiar with Bridalveil Fall in Yosemite Valley, this is near the base of the vertical wall of the fall and there is, approximately, a 1/2 mile climb up the rocks at the bass of the fall, pretty strenuous, especially given the large, heavy backpack with camera gear and hand holding my Ries J100/J250 tripod. I.ve done this hike twice, now, the first time in August 1984; at that time I was using my Canon F1 with a bunch of prime lenses and I have a cool series of Kodachrome slides looking straight up (while laying on my back) the face of the fall with water spinning around as it fell the 600 or so feet from the top of it. Obviously, this hike can only be done when the waterfall is at it lowest point with minimal water flowing, otherwise the water raining down can get over 3/4 mile away from the base of the fall. Kind of like in this overview of the valley that I made in April 1990. Note that Bridalveil Fall is near the rights side of the middle of this photo, which was, again, made with the 90/8 SA lens with a #25 red filter on the lens, the fall is about 610" tall, for a sense of scale, Half Dome is about 5-6 miles to the east and it's vertical face is 2200' and the top of Half Dome to the valley floor below it is 4900'; where the photo was made is around 7 miles to the west of Half Dome.

Are there hidden Ricks in any of these shots?
There is no reason to ever be bored.

...why yes, I suppose I do have a double bound guitar fetish...
