Last November seems long ago now, but I have finally developed colour photos of the sailing stones at Racetrack Playa, made just before sunset on our last day in Death Valley.
It was an incredible experience – almost surreal!
I will never forget racing across the playa with a 4×5 camera and tripod, photographing the stones, just moments before each lost their shadow to the dusk.
Afterwards, it was deeply satisfying standing far out on the Racetrack as evening fell, enjoying the stillness of this remarkable place.
All photos were taken using my Chamonix 045F1View Camera, with Rodenstock Apo-Sironar-S 150mm lens, on Fuji Pro160C sheet film and developed in the Unicolour C41 kit.
