    Ops, never mind Paul, it would have been a less interesting double exposure if the camera (or film holder I guess) hadn't been rotated by 90 degrees.

    Ha, no rotating back on my big beast! You have to move the camera!

    It's a bit galling, though.

    I lumped the camera, 4 film holders, two light meters, a tripod and a darkcloth all in a very unsuitable and uncomfortable canvas duffel bag (the only bag I have big enough), up a short but very steep hill, knowing exactly what I wanted to take ... just for the clouds to arrive as soon as I did. I only managed to make 4 exposures, three of which were poorly composed and the fourth (the vertical one in this) just exactly what I wanted, only to ruin it ... I gave up on the light and went home ... whereupon the sun blazed forth ...

    the joys of photography ...

    Rotating back comes along when I win the lottery and get Chamonix or someone to build me a custom job :biggrin:

    I've just developed and scanned a roll of 35mm including some I took at the same location at the same time as that in the OP, and this is pretty much the photograph I was trying to make :
