What the heck, got your attention.

Here (http://tonopahpictures.0catch.com/1220/12X20Bristlecones083106.html) is a page of 12X20 photographs accomplished at 11,500 feet elevation
in the Ancient Bristlecone Forest of White Mountains, CA.

Click on any of the photos if you want a larger version.

You know the drill. Let me know your thoughts. No they're not perfect. Nothing I do ever will be. I'm over that.

Jim, from the post title I was expecting to see a portrait of Jerry Garcia in 12x20 :)

Thanks Jim, those are really cool, nice photos....

I guess the bottom left corner is the issue you previously discussed in another forum. A mat could probably solve that in most cases I guess if you composed with that in mind..I agree the best accessory one could have for these "oh so fun ULFies" is a good vehicle and next a well stocked cooler!

If you want to get there the easy way, copy and paste;

37 32'51.33"N, 118 11'53.60"W

into 'google earth.'

Matt, yes, but no good prints yet. I'm 1220 challenged for contact prints. So far all I have is a 16X20 piece of plexi hinged to the table with tape. Not tight enough and the prints have blurs where the film lifted from the paper.

Jerry Garcia and Elvis BOTH want to get in front of my camera! They're over in area 51 so it's not that far.

Dave, the best vehicle to take to this spot is <someone elses>. Can I borrow the Excursion for the next trip? :o

Great shots, Jim! I have been there twice, first time with my Hasselblad in a Acura Vigor and I was scared to death driving around, second time with my Deardorff in a Land Rover leased specially for this kind of trip and the third time I will bring my 10x20. UC Santa Cruz has a workshop that you can sign up and live there in that research station for five days.

I like your second picture the most. I can just see all the details of that tree with my closed eyes.

Jim, I love your portraits! The detail is amazing! So much so I can smell the air, or lack there of!
Ok now Jim, you know the drill. Film, developer, filters you know all of the gorey details. Great Job! I reallly need to get the 8x20 done. Thanks for the inspiration.

Stay Focused.....or Soft Focused!!

ROFL! Jim, you make this so much fun! 12X20 Folmer & Schwing camera of course. Lens was an ancient Wollensak f10 Process Velostigmat of 19" focal length that is a 4 - 4 protar VII type. I paid $45 for it. No filters. Film was the Efke 100 that I was crabbing about in the last thread. PyroCatHD 12 1/2 minutes in a tray. Thanks!

Hi Jim,

Very nice work. Wish I could have been there.

Great use of a wonderful old optic.

Best,

Sandy

Well done Jim, a shame those old Wolley's are so notorious for making less than sharp images huh? My favorite is "all of them"!

Really enjoyed these Jim, looking forward to seeing more in the future!

"When I got to the summit, the grease in the front differential was boiling."

Hey, what? You didn't walk a paltry seven miles to the summit with a 12x20? ;)

Nice photos as always! Keep on "getting high"! :D

10,522 ft, in a truck? Sorry, not impressed. Now, had you walked up with the camera on your back, *that* would have been impressive. :D :D

Hi Jim,

A very nice series. Thank God you didn't pack that monster in and hike that whole distance and vertical change.

If you can get that thing to Colorado, I will gladly cart you to the top of Mt Evans (http://www.mountevans.com/Mount-Evans-About.HTML), 14,130 at the parking lot, 14,264 summit. It will have to be next year, since the road is now closed for the winter.
