The camera is my tool. Through it I give reason to everything around me.

LAKE NIPISSING SKY
The sky over lake Nipissing reminded me of the drawings and prints by the nineteenth century book illustrator Gustave Doré. I remember his very popular bible illustrations full of dramatic skies. The ky was not as dark and dramatic as in the photograph but I first underexposed the picture by about one stop. I further enhanced the image in the digital darkroom till I got the atmosphere I was looking for.
