photoblog image The Painted Desert, Arizona

The Painted Desert, Arizona

 

Scanned slide from 1971 - again, much dirt removed!  I think the object in the sky is not dirt, but a falcon of some kind - possibly the Prairie Falcon or even a Peregrine.

Looks bigger than a Peregrine Tom
Tom Wilson: Mmm - I've no idea really - it could still be a big blob of dust smile

This is a great view and the result from the scan gives it a romantic feel.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis.

Funny how the quality of photography grows yet we look back longingly at earlier examples.
Tom Wilson: It is isn't it - I scan them just to try to get a more permanent record, but they become so dirty over time that many are useless. Give me digital any time!

I disagree with Tiff, I think it is smaller than a gnat.
Tom Wilson: If you say so, sir.

This is a great scan and I love this kind of views....Great to so the layers in the stone.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid.
Well it isn't a robin
Tom Wilson: Yes - not even the American variety.
The colour is intense for an old slide.
Tom Wilson: A lot depends on which colour film I used - Agfafilm turned out to be hopeless for example, but Ektachrome keeps its colours well

It's good that you have been able to resurrect this.
Tom Wilson: One of only a few that were not too dirty or faded to be worth scanning!
A fine mountain scene, the yellow has come through strongly on the scan.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian. I guess Elizabeth and Frank will recognize it smile

I had to search for the bird smile Ill take your word for what it is. In the meantime, I'll enjoy that wonderful but rugged scenery.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Alan - rugged is the word!
Ahhhh we do indeed recognize this wonderful desert! The color is a bit more yellow - owing to age I suppose! That is definitely a big bird - not a speck of dust.... and I suspect it may be a Turkey Vulture.
Tom Wilson: Yes, you could be right, Elizabeth, perhaps a TV.
