Carlevaro Beach
On the Sonoma Coast in California.
In the distance are Mammoth Rocks and the uplifted marine terrace where mammoths may have once roamed.

The calotype was starting to curl as I made this digi-snap, but you can get an idea what it looks like.

7x11 Eastman No. 2, uncatalogued Wollensak lens.

Greenlaw's process, Canson Vidalon Vellum Calque (from pad)
Unexpectedly, the paper shrunk width-wise during preparation, and I had to use a small piece of tape under the rail on one side of the holder.

Bright overcast, beach & rocks LV 13, far slopes LV 14, water and sky LV 15. Clouds obscuring distant hills. F/45, 35m.

Development: 1.4g gallic acid in 200ml DH2O, no image visible at start. Added 2 eyedroppers aceto-nitrate of silver. Done after 43 minutes. Dried between 2 changes of blotters over 2 days and then left under a 3rd clean blotter for 5 days while I was out of town.

Back was touched up with a soft pencil for printing, and the marks are visible in this image, but not on the salt print.

Graham Hughes, Formica, have particularly liked this photo
