Red Shoulder Hawk
I was sitting on my porch having my morning cup of tea when this Red-shouldered Hawk landed on the tree right in front of the window. I moved over to Niki’s Pentax with the 1200mm lens, slowly opened the window and just as I got ready to take the photograph he spread his wings into the morning sun. As the light poured through his feathers like stain glass, I took the picture. Red-Shouldered Hawk was taken with a Pentax 6×7 camera on Ilford XP2 film. This photograph is hand-printed in Clyde’s darkroom on fiber-based paper, selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. The photograph is a limited edition and signed by Clyde. Camera settings f/22 | 1200mm Takumar lens | 1/4 sec Disclaimer – Cropping, contrast, and image density may vary.
