Awesome picture!

Behind The Lens

Location
I think it was in October 1991 in the Pinnacles desert WA
Time
I slept on top of my Toyota right next to the place to be there at dawn. The shadows tell me it was not more than half an hour later
Lighting
The lighting was provided by the sun, the good weather by divine intervention. All I had to do is find a good angle
Equipment
I used my Toyo Field 4x5" with a Schneider 90 mm. The tripod I still have, it is a Sokkia surveyor's tripod. A linhof head with bubble level carries the weight nicely
Inspiration
The evening before I had seen the potential, but weather was not kind. so I explored a bit, but carefully avoided walking around too much between the rocks I walked around the cones careful no to leave any footmarks till I saw a nice lineup. A glorious dawn and a cool morning required fast movement for me and the camera. One has to get the dark bag ready, load film etc before it is to late.
Editing
All film had to be processed, weird question. There was a place in Perth that developed sheet film at a high price. Can't remember whether I sent it to Melbourne or had it done there. Scanner was my tiny SCREEN 4x5 drum scanner, built in 1995 bought 2nd hand in 2001
In my camera bag
Then there used to be heavy boxes with medium format Pentax 67 and the big fat field camera, most of all that heavy tripod. Today I use a Nikon d4 and a d800 and a lot of old lenses, most from before AF was introduced.
Feedback
Most of all, don't walk across the sand. Observe from outside. I stood on the roof of my Toyota to plan the thing the evening before. have patience and find a good angle. Since there are no field cameras around these days, get a wobbly lens if you can. I still dream of a flexible 24mm.
