Having arrived at the location in the dark the night before, I had no idea of the surroundings, I had simply rolled out my swag tied off my dog and gone to sleep. In the morning I awoke to this majestic scene. Thankfully, while I fumbled around in the camera bag, loaded the camera and set up the tripod, the dog went back to sleep. I took six frames on the Bronica before the fog in the distance slowly engulfed the shot. I waited around for about half an hour for another break in the weather but it never happened. I was absolutely delighted when the transparencies came back from the lab. Shot on film Velvia 50 ISO using a Bronica ETRS, Bronica 40mm f/4 lens Speed N/A f-stop N/A.
