Test shot from another new camera creation. This is the first picture I've ever composed and focused with a ground glass. I'm not sure this makes me a "real" photographer, but I got a funny look from some people who pulled into the turnout when they saw me with my coat over my head kneeling in front of my tripod :)

The distant hills receding into the air are Point Reyes. I am already pleased with this lens after only one picture!

Some description of the camera is here and will be updated with more details in the coming weeks.

Rolleigraf, a perhaps hand, Joey Culver, Clint Hudson and 4 other people have particularly liked this photo

Wow ... I'm in awe of your camera-building skills, Ned! And what a beautiful photo ... I really like the way my eye meanders into the background, and the conversation between the nearer point, with the trees on it, and Point Reyes. You have a lot to be pleased about!

i like the distant ridges receding into the air. its 'horizonal' aspect of landscape that intrigues me.

Lovely story, Ned. I wish I had a pound for every time someone has suggested I catch up with the 'pros' and buy a digital camera. ;-)

This is a gorgeous image, and I am in awe of your camera making skills, too! There are so many layers in here, as clarity gradually succumbs to the distant haze.

Thanks everyone... I hope this is all aiming toward making a calotype in this contraption!
Need some sunshine for that... maybe this weekend!
