Clouds Over Murphy Point, 1995. Canyonlands National Park, Utah.
Murphy point can be reached via a two-mile hike past the road’s end in the Island-In-The-Sky district of Canyonlands National Park. My assistant and I waited for probably three hours at the point, hoping to get some interesting photographs. We watched as different cloud formations moved swiftly across the landscape. I anticipated this image beforehand, as I noticed some interesting cloud formations approaching. With the camera already set up, it was a matter of timing and utilizing an appropriate filter to achieve the values I wanted. I used an orange filter and Tri-X film. The print requires some hand bleaching (highlight brightening) around some areas of the "white rim" and careful burning and dodging in the sky.
