Photographed: Aug. 15, 2002
Format: Linhof V 4x5
Exposure: About 5 seconds
Negative Development: Pyro, Normal
While I was photographing in bright sunlight rock formations at Shore Acres near Coos Bay, Oregon, my wife and son took a walk on a nearby path. They soon returned and told me that leaves, the kind I like, could be found on a hillside adjacent to the path.
Since I was getting no where in the bright light, I went into the shadows along the path and spotted this formation of leaves entanged in tall grass under a lump of tree roots.
I waited for a break in a light breeze that ruined several exposures with the leaves moving. This negative looked pretty sharp after being scanned.
