Elves Chasm (looking out)

Finished the sepia edition (10) from this photogravure plate.
The sky in this picture is a very close portrayal of the typical sky from the trip last year. Overcast much of the time, but when clear the wind kicked up. This all made for some very flat light. Taking pictures within a tight canyon was good, but as soon as I turned the camera lens skyward, the meter did all sorts of crazy things. I had to rely on what I had learned about light meters, exposure, aperture a very long time ago.

Here is a link to a very cool 360 panoramic view of Elves Chasm that someone else made.
