Altamont

Altamont


The wind turbines on the summit of Altamont Pass, even as images of them have become common and clich├ęd, remain for me an enduring source of surrealism.

Taken in June, 1997 with a Minolta XG-M and 200mm tele lens on Ektachrome 400, scanned on a Polaroid SprintScan 35+, then cleaned up and gamma corrected in Photoshop CS4, with saturation and levels adjustments in Aperture.
