Thanks Ken. If you've got any pointers as to who can print on that Red River paper, let me know. I'Truly excellent. I agree about being a wall hanger!! I have some similar images from the Canadian Rockies and they are wonderful in B&W, especially printed on Red River Metallic Paper!!
I've never understood why anyone would want to resist. To each his and her own, but when I see a famous scene that's famous because it's beautiful, I'm grateful to have been there and want to document the moment by photographing it.I got the photos done by millions of others too, couldn't resist.
I almost resisted at the spot where Adams shot his "Tetons and the Snake River" (the Oxbow shot). There were a lot of photographers there, or to put it more accurately there were a lot of people with tripods and cameras - all jabbering on about their "stuff". It kind of put me off, so I took a quick couple of photos and got out of there. I've never been good in crowds, thankfully this was the only spot where I saw anyone with a camera in a week and a half of travel. There are some really amazing photographic opportunities in that part of the country.I've never understood why anyone would want to resist.

Thanks Eric. I don't recall ever using that lens for a landscape shot, and I'd read about compression and using a telephoto, I was curious how it worked.Simply stunning, Rick, both in execution and in processing. I get a sense of motion from it as if the peaks are coming toward the viewer.
