near Coulee Dam, Washington State, USA.
sunset  (1997)

Driving into a forest fire raging out of control on one of the many trans-American crossings in a beat up Dodge Tradesman 300 van. It was the last roll of film in the cooler and happened to be a 3 ASA print stock. I doubted that any of the light would be recorded but was moved to shoot it anyway. That roll was left un-processed for a year and one night with a fresh batch of chemistry, I loaded it into my tank. The result was a complete surprise.
