I recently came across this image while working on The Archive Project. This piece is now part of The Western Landscape series.
It was a chilly morning sleeping in a tent near the waters edge. I was awakened early by the sound of a hot air balloon hovering over the reservoir.
Scenic Stampede Reservoir, located on the Little Truckee River on the east slope of the Sierra Nevada, is one of the premier reservoirs for Kokanee Salmon fishing in the West. Situated at 6,000 feet in elevation on the Jeffrey pine and sagebrush studded mountains, Stampede is a large reservoir, covering 3,400 acres with 25 miles of shoreline. It's a very popular lake for fishermen from the Reno area and throughout northern and central California. It's also a very fertile reservoir, known for abundant plankton blooms that make it such a productive habitat for the Kokanee Salmon. Ice fishing is available during the winter months.

This work was created by using an old medium format film camera and Kodak Professional Plus-X 125 Black-and-White Film. Sadly, the 120mm film size is no longer being manufactured. The traditional negative is scanned on a drum scanner to create a 300 megabyte digital file which serves as a vehicle for the tonal balancing, lighting, and darkening that was formerly done in the darkroom. Once the aesthetic interpretation is realized in the computer and matched with the artist proof print created in the traditional "wet" darkroom, the image is then printed on fully archival silver gelatin fiber base paper.
