Radeka Photography

Branches and Lake, Washington. Black and white photograph
Branches and Lake, 2002. North Cascades National Park, WA

High in the North Cascades mountain range, not far from the Mount Baker ski area, I spent many afternoons on several different trips working with compositions around this pristine mountain lake. Using a black 4x5 cutout card to assist in visualizing this composition, I set the camera up while fighting off hungry mosquitos. I like the clean composition of this photograph which I refined by looking at the image in the camera's ground glass while moving the camera position and angle slightly. I used Tri-X film developed normally in Kodak HC-110 developer. The print is made to intentionally enhance the luminous, etherial quality of the near-white tree branches.
