One of Man's masterpieces - a Hasselblad, fitted with (a borrowed and ever-so-beautiful) 50mm chrome lens, meets one of Nature's masterpieces: a wintery Crater Lake.
I can't begin to express the shock of pure wonderment and awe I experienced upon seeing this lake in the Winter... especially after a failed attempt about two years ago. I think that seeing it on a stormy, cloud-swept day was even more magnificent than on a clear day, as the water took on a very dark and fathomless cobalt blue hue. My friend Joel and I spent a few hours snowshoeing around the rim (yes, those are my feet in snowshoes to either side of the Hasselblad) last weekend. I'm still waiting on my rolls of 120 from this trip, but I liked this image - taken with my Nikon FM, which was loaded with Velvia 50 slide film - quite well.
