Photographer's Note

Update: I have reposted this image after acquiring a new scanner (Epson 4870) and making major improvements in my negative scanning knowledge and workflow. I hope you will agree that it is much improved over the original post in color, contrast, and luminosity. -Don

The famous Painted Desert of Arizona is a region of colorful weathered shales, mudstones, and siltstones, geological strata together comprising the Chinle Formation. But the Chinle Formation is found in other states as well, in places rivalling the Painted Desert in intensity and variety of color. This photo was taken in southern Utah at the foot of Mancos Mesa, an area locally known as the Clay Hills.

Update: I feel I should comment on the film. The Fuji NPH negative film is capable of wonderful color reproduction as you can see. But it has a well-deserved reputation for being difficult to print or scan. If you choose to use it, try to find a professional photo lab that processes a lot of it, because thay will know how to deal with its unique spectral properties. Or if you do your own scanning, use a film-specific scanning program like Silverfast.
