|Mt. Ranier (14410 feet) taken from the observation deck of the Seattle Space Needle. The atmospheric haze and distance, about 75 miles, from downtown Seattle makes Ranier seem to "float" above the landscape. Taken on a very rare clear winter day in the Pacific Northwest.
F2 Photomic, 55mm f/2.8 AIS Micro Nikkor, Kodachrome 25 and polarizing filter. Man oh man I miss that amazing stuff, digital has NOTHING on it! Incredible sharpness, non-existent grain and super saturated colors. It was pure color perfection. I would put my DSLR's away in the closet if Kodak would bring it back. I still shoot a fair amount of film but mostly in B&W and medium format. T-Max 100 does do very well in 35mm as well as 2¼.
