4x5 for 365 project (324/365)

The upper most section of our backyard waterfall that leads down to our small pond.  I decided to haul out the somewhat neglected Calumet 45NX monorail for this shot.  Now that things are getting much colder around here and I'll be driven back inside the home studio I'll be using that camera a lot more for portraits and still-life work.

4x5 for 365 project (125/365)

My first attempt at a long(ish) exposure of moving water using the large format 4x5 camera.  I could have picked a better time to shoot this where the afternoon sun wasn't shining down directly on the water but it was a first attempt and you have to start somewhere.  The goal of this daily project is to learn as much as possible with every image during each phase of the exposure, developing and darkroom printing cycle.
