Incandescent Descent by gwrhino Incandescent Descent by gwrhino
....again I take you on a trip in the way back machine to the olden days.

This was back when there were no ladders, and the only way to get into Antelope was well, difficult.

to illuminate the rappeller, I had to put that powder on a stand next to the camera and light it with a match. After that I merely put the lens cap on the camera to stop the exposure.

OK, so maybe you're not buying that little bit of happy-horses%^t.

This was my first published picture....

Taken back when there was a little bit of mystery and originality left in the canyon. =) That is enviable that you were there to see it in its prime! It is very refreshing to see a unique take on Antelope. The human element gives some much-needed scale to what other photos usually portray as abstract whisps of mineralized eye candy. Nice seeing an older shot of this place. :thumbsup:

I'm asking to myself, by watching the thumbnail, if this could be a painting... wonderful painting. But no.

Your illumination techniques seem a bit archaic. It is much easier rubbing a couple quarts rocks together.

ah, the quartz rocks causing sparks technique...quite original thinking...

The problem with that method is that with the sparking quartz rocks is that you can accidently ignite the sandstone....

thanks for the suggestion, tho...

Crap. I never considered that. Back to the drawing board.
