This is another image that is featured in the July issue of Photo Life magazine, the image was taken with my 4 x 5 view camera and a 300mm lens in the Bella Coola valley in B.C. I liked the misty clouds that hovered around the peak of what I believe to be Mt. Purgatory at the end of a rough logging road , the trees on the left helped compose the image and give a good range of grays from black to white. When I look for possible images that will make good black and white photographs I try to find elements that occur in the natural landscape, in this case, clouds, trees and a mountain side that will translate well into black and white , on that misty rainy day in the mountains I found a nice image waiting for me.
