El Capitan and its ReflectionYosemite National Park

This view was created with an 8 x 10" view camera fitted with a 75mm Super Angulon lens  - the circular image shows the entire image resolved on the film by this lens on the 8 x 10 film.  This lens is more traditionally used on a 4 x 5" view camera.  This 'fisheye' style approach allowed me to capture the entire peak and its reflection in the Merced River.  The final print was made in my former darkroom about 1984 to 20 x 24 fiber paper and then hand-tinted.  Bennett Hall
