The week I spent in the Cypress Hills with Courtney Milne was a pivotal event in my photographic life. We had our E6 film processed over night, and it was one of the first times that I had speedy feedback on my images. Unlike the digital cameras of today, you could get print film developed at a one hour photo shop, but they usually batch processed E6 every couple of days. Kodachrome had to be mailed in for processing often involving a 10 day to a 2 week wait. So, we shot every day and turned in our film every night. We got to pick up our processed slides when we got back after our dawn shooting. Then we sorted and picked a few selects for showing to the group for critique after lunch. This image was well received by the rest.
