Possibly the best photo I've ever taken



This was captured quite by luck. It was the last frame of a roll of Kodak 100 ASA Gold film. shooting with an ancient Minolta SRT 101 SLR. Sadly I've lost the negative over the years. I took it in 1993 when I was living in Denver. I was on my way over the mountains, heading to the San Luis Valley very early one morning. This is actually South Park but I don't think you'll see Kenny in there anywhere. My folks have a 16 x 20 of it hanging in their home. Somewhere amidst the stuff from the move last year, I have a 5 x 7 print. Perhaps I can scan it with enough resolution to make bigger prints. Nothing digitally enhanced on this one. What you see is what I saw. I got one chance to take it. I was quite pleased when I saw something had come out on the last negative of that roll.

Peace,

Wander

I hate to say but taking the photo was actually an afterthought to the whole WOW factor of seeing it in the first place. It last maybe 45 seconds before the sun rose higher and it was all gone.
