ON THE ROCKS

 
on the dune series 2013

 

 

 

The beauty and intrigue of these dunes, found near the shore of Lake  Ontario,

 

has been eluding my various cameras and lens for years.  With the pinhole

 

camera however, the dune has finally been done justice.  Is it the wide angle

 

view?  The deep depth of focus?  The slight edge distortion?  The natural light

 

fall-off that  creates the vignetting along the borders of the exposure?  The rich

 

dynamic tonal range, like that of a platinum print?  Or the romantic softness,

 

like that of a photogravure?  All these elements have combined to capture this

 

unique landscape as it feels when standing there, on the dune.
