Glacier Point: Picture behind the picture
This morning, we found this picture on Heather's old iPhone. Taken as I was perched precariously on the edge of a 3000 foot cliff (not really, there was a big ledge in front of me) and just moments after I took the picture below (the clouds had slammed into the face of half dome and moved downward by then).
And this is the picture I was taking: (click to enlarge)
A Canon 5D Mark II with a 50mm/1.4 prime lens. No tripod, no medium format, no film holders, no fancy anything. About 2.5 pounds of gear. When we got home I had it printed at 30x48" and it looks amazing even from a few inches away. Modern technology is awesome.
By the way, if any of you want to buy a print. Send me an email (bill at billwadman.com), I know the photographer so I can get you a deal. Any size, but it's definitely made to be seen big.
