We once photographed this pristine stretch of the Union River in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness, some years back, with Hasselblads. I carried that memory with me while working my favorite spots. The river does not change much, other than water level and light (best light is on an overcast day in the Fall or Winter when all the leaves are off). All those years for me of shooting 6x6 negatives and I still visualize images in a square format. For landscape however, the traditional 35mm or in medium format, the 6x7 negative is superior for filling the frame and allowing for both vertical and horizontal presentations. The square format works best for portraits and controlled studio environments, but is challenging for composition in landscape work. The Union River here is gorge-like, meandering, and under a canopy of trees. For that reason, I generally shoot HDR here rather than long exposures using a Neutral Density Filter, my technique of choice for moving water. The reason being, the lack of light under the canopy would result in exposures of 15 minutes or more, well beyond my patience and battery life. If you are going to work here, footwear with excellent traction on wet rocks is a necessity, otherwise, you risk not only broken bones, but trashing your prized equipment in a fall. The wet rocks are very dangerous. My friend Mike Pisco at Pisco's Meat Processing finished butchering up the buck killed Friday and I picked it up during my lunch today. Many steaks, roasts, and stew meat. I always bypass the burger, as there is virtually no fat in venison and it is hard to cook with unless you add pork or cooking oil. The steaks and stews are my favorite. Roasts or any cut of venison done all day in the crock pot is something special with a potato and vegetables. Going to have my first butterfly steak from the backstraps (the Filet Mignon of Deer) tomorrow for supper.
