A second image of Gådoktjåhkkå with Namasj and Ridok in the foreground.
The clouds are really spectacular, and make the photograph all the more powerful.
BTW, this is not a b&w version of the same scene in colour. You will realise if you look closely at the clouds. It is two different images taken at different times.
I wish there was slightly better tone separation in the highlights, but stellar nonetheless.
it shows such vastness
I know what you mean. This in particular hurts the snow in the distance. Not sure if that might be a result of the haze which turned it all in a fuzzy mushy mass with low contrast.
Actually I take that back. My monitor's gamut isn't wide enough to display the full range of tones all at once, but I can see the detail when I angle the monitor. That said, this is an excellent example of where the print really matters. I'd find myself a stellar bw only inkjet printer and some hahnemuehle museum rag, or have a large bw negative made and contact print it. Of course I'd prefer the latter but that's just how I roll.
well, I guess I cannot judge it really either since I have to work with my poor laptop screen.
My proper EIZO is in my car, well padded, as is my computer since I am on the move Hopefully by Sunday I can look at my own images properly. But haze was a problem in that image still.
Wow... this and your other one you posted are both amazing.
