Art Gallery:  Sunsets, Skies, and Clouds 1




Sunset photos, to me, are not about the exact appearance of the sunset;  they're about how I remember the sunset.  Or, how I want to remember the sunset.  

Somewhere beyond that sunset I know the road goes ever farther, outward, and upward.   When that sun goes down, it shines upon some distant new lands to the west, somewhere over that horizon. 

Most of my work is on film (35mm through 4x5), but there's an occasional digital picture as well. 

Many of these pictures I named on a whim;  the titles may change.

I hope you enjoy my work.


Winter Sunset

February 2011
Kodak Elite Chrome 100 (35mm)

Winter sunset emphasizing the blue sky and the golden yellow sun. 

In late 2017, Kodak Alaris is planning to introduce Ektachrome again.  I am really looking forward to this.  I hope that it will be similar to the Elite Chrome 100 emulsion, which was essentially a consumer-branded Ektachrome.

As with most if not all of them, this was shot without any sort of grad filter. 


Panoramic Sunset

Crown Graphic 4x5 with 135mm Optar lens
Fujichrome Velvia 100F (4x5)
Cropped to a 4:9 aspect ratio

This would print as an 8"x18" panorama.  With a 2" mat border, that's a 12" x 22" frame. 

Originally I had the photos on here with white borders to show the mat width, but on-line I think it looks better without.

A Majestic Land of Solitude

Kodak Ektachrome 100VS (35mm)

There seems to be a fair amount of this film available in 220.  If you shoot medium format, it gives twice the number of pictures as a roll of 120.



Fujicolor / Superia 100 film (35mm)



Kodak Elite Chrome 100 (35mm)

A dramatic sunset captured on slide film in 2012.

Dreaming Hill

Yashica MAT 124G
Fuji Pro 400H (120 film)

A thing like this could not be easily imitated;  you photograph the sky you get. 

But what makes you get the sky you got?

A Vague Sense of Contentment

Kodak Elite Chrome 100 (35mm)

View from a mountaintop, looking into a cloudy, misty sunset with pastel hues of orange.



October 2012
Superia 800 film (35mm)

The high-speed color negative film imparts a grainy appearance to the picture.

The color balance was adjusted to my liking, not necessarily the way it actually looked. 



Fujicolor / Superia 100 film (35mm)

A colorful sunset of shaded orange-purple against a deep blue sky.
