This image was shot from the dart train window as we sped past some freeway overpasses. About half of the negative below this image was cropped out as it was only the inside of the train showing no detail whatever.

This Gum was one of the first I printed with a multiple layer technique using oranges, grays and blacks to bring out the full scale of the image. My favorite part is the subtle differentiation between the structure under the bridge and the shadowed out areas. It is possibly the first time I understood Ansel Adam's Zone I! The gum layers are slightly misaligned on the far left.
