1971 - Bear Lake, Colorado

1971 - A craggy peak at Bear Lake Colorado.  Taken while my parents and I were on a cross-country road trip from California, visiting friends.

I was just staring to think about "arty" shots in those days, as I had already been making movies for six year when I got my first still camera, and was more "focused" on "trick" photography in moving pictures.

I think this is the first reflection shot I ever (intentionally) took.

What I liked most was the symmetry and the darker-than-life exposure.  To this day, I'm usually not satisfied with the exposure on automatic setting, even on my most sophisticated professional cameras.  I tend to shut down almost every shot between 1 and 1.5 "stops" before an image gets the richness and depth I'm looking for.
