The award-winning Solitude was shot on medium format, black & white film, just before dawn on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. The high-key effect was created and enhanced in-camera by filtering, with virtually no post-processing.

So simple yet so lovely
NICE AND SIMPLE… LOVE IT
Thank you all. I appreciate it.
Beautiful minimal image … great!
I love this one, too. I would love to go out on a boat like that.
Simply stunning. I love the simple complexity behind this.
What skills you possess!!
Thank you all.
This is from the old days of making all adjustments at the moment of exposure. While standing almost in the water, attempting to beat the morning sun from cresting the mountains, I was able to clearly see the mountains on the other side of the lake. I used filtration to obtain the effect. After a quick second shot, the sun crested the mountain tops, and the shot was gone.
So, I was just lucky.
