I have a couple of neat images to share from the Grand Canyon, one taken almost 112 years ago, the other from about two years ago.
Both pictures were taken in the vicinity of Bright Angel hotel/lodge on the south rim, looking over Plateau Point (where trails are in lower left of color shot), and out to Bright Angel canyon past Zoroaster Temple on the middle-right.
The old B&W image from c1900 was taken by an 8×10″ view camera, (silver gelatin glass transparency); the new one with a Sony A900 and CZ 24-70mm lens. Both images were cropped by about a third, so I could match up the view more precisely. For some reason, I used ISO 400 and saved the file to jpeg on the A900, not sure why. That does degrade the quality somewhat. However, the A900 shot had a slight advantage overall as the field of view was less, meaning it was ‘zoomed in’ more.Read More →
