Magic Moment

Shot with a Pentax K-1000 using TRI-X pushed 2 or 3 stops.


This shot is about 20 years old. It was my first time visiting the Mohonk area, and the fog had just started to lift as we approached the lake. I think I was pushing the film to 1600 maybe 3200. This is a scan from a 4x6 print and all the grain you see is natural, analog film grain.


It was a magic day, and I have many great shots (and memories) from that day.

    Mohonk is a very special place. I remember Ida, a 70+ Sweedish masseuse would lead a hike in the morning an hour before sunrise. After tosting the sunrise from the top of a hill with a bottle of schnaps, we would go skinny-dipping in this lake. One morning, this was the only section of the lake that wasn't frozen solid. We broke the ice around these gazebos and jumped in. That was living.

    Thanks for the memories!
