Comments on the image above: I was walking with a friend in the Budawang mountains in Morton National Park, probably in 1984, in driving rain and it was getting dark. My friend kept wanting to stop and bivouac anywhere with the least amount of shelter but I insisted on keeping on going because I knew what was ahead. We reached a huge “camping cave”, a great overhang on the side of Mt Haughton, and stayed there all of the next day out of the inclement weather.
At the edges of the overhang, I was able to set up my tripod and take photographs out into the mist and rain from a nice dry location. At first glance it looks like a tree on the right with a branch coming off it, but it’s a cliff with a tree growing improbably out of the vertical face. This of course is well before the days of digital photography and I was using a borrowed Linhof Technika. This is a large format camera with a 5×4″ film size (9x12cm in Europe but a slightly different size) and it is a field camera because it folds up to a compact size. The film would have been Fujichrome 50 (before the days of Velvia).

Shall look forward to the update
I thought about you when I got thinking about who I’d like to invite, I wanted to
personally invite you on our trip to Altai Mountains. I should have done so earlier
just been extremely busy. This adventure is a photographer’s dream come true.
Here’s a link to see the post here.
Also working on bringing down the costs for air travel which I will post as soon as
I finalize this portion. Don’t worry about committing as of yet basically looking for
interest. So if this tickles your fancy let me know.
That sounds fantastic! I’m definitely interested! You forgot to include the link though. At this stage, apart from a trip to Hawaii in nine days, my only commitment is a cruise to South Georgia Island 7th to 21st November.
Oops. I tried to create a link, guess it didn’t work. Try this.
