Traveling south from Washington State in Spring 2010, I decided to avoid the I-5 corridor, and take the road less traveled down Northern California's Modoc Plateau. I wanted to visit McArthur Burney Falls, a very special place for me as it was one of the first places I photographed back in 1990 following the hiking accident that led to my interest in photography. It felt surreal to be back - like finishing a giant circle that began over 20 years ago. It was appropriate then that I was testing a cutting edge technique with very modern equipment. This photograph was made with a tilt-shift lens mounted to a modern digital camera. This lens has many of the same movements as my 4x5 camera. Burney looked exactly as I remembered - a misty primeval place deep gray blue and green looking like it could have existed millions of years ago.
