Wk 20-21 (2017) : Area around Moab and Canyon Lands

Back in May I made these images in the area around Moab. The bridge is on Utah highway 128, which is the alternative route into Moab from interstate 70. We’ve seen that bridge in various states. The first time thru, it was badly damaged, but intact. Then it had been restored, and just the next year someone had burned it down, and it remains in its current state.

The canyon shots are from the Green River Overlook in Canyonlands National Park. This was the first workshop we had while attending the Moab Photography Symposium.

These were made with my Intrepid 4×5 camera and two lenses. A 210 mm and a 300 mm I borrowed from the workshop leader Bruce Barhbaum. I really like shooting the canyons with the 300 mm. I’ll have to see if I can find one at a reasonable price.

All images where made with a mixture of Fuji Acros Neopan 4×5 film and Kodak TMAX 100, developed in Clayton F76+ and scanned using an Epson V700 flatbed scanner. One of my goals was to compare the TMAX against the Fuji Neopan. Unfortunately it appears that I had some bad chemistry, as there are artifacts on the images that look like uneven development. So I threw out all of my chemistry and mixed a fresh batch to develop the remaining film from this trip. This time everything looked good.
