I was up in the Hudson River Valley over the weekend staying with friends in Palenville, New York. The weather was atmospheric with a low fog hanging over the valley just after a hard rain. As we were driving to dinner on Saturday night we passed Bastion Falls and simply could not resist the light - a perfect storm so to speak.
Having always been drawn to the Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen images I used the iPhone4 to recreate an image with an alternative process feel - something the iPhone does very well.
