First light on Mt Kosciuszko

Camera/Lens: Linhof Technorama 617S III, Schneider 90mm f5.6 Super Angulon
Film: Fuji Velvia 50

Finally got the chance to scan my panoramic film transparencies after buying an Epson V700 scanner. I am pleased with the results for web use. Drum scanning gets the best results for printing but gets expensive when needing to scan lots of images. Had this one filed away since July last year and got a pleasant surprise when I put it on my lightbox. Captured this on an overnight solo trip – I love being out there on my own experiencing these moments. It was my last frame on the roll of film so I had to wait for the right moment. Used a small rock in the saddle in the lower middle of the image as my point of reference and pressed the cable release when the light hit it. Would have liked more light in the saddle but the colours in the sky were waning. Looking forward to getting out there again this winter. Lets hope we get lots of snow.
