Boat on Crater Lake

When I was in college I inherited my grandfather's old twin-lens camera. He used to use it in the 1950s when he was a photo journalist. Like other simple mechanical devices of its time, it was built to last, and it still works. I love it for the square format photos it takes.

This picture was taken on an unusually calm day in September. It's very rare to see the lake so still.

I offer this one as an 8x8 here, but I have also printed it much larger. It looks really good as a 20x20, and I have a 44x44 that was hanging in a show at Pro Photo Supply that I'm not sure what to do with. Any ideas?


  1. It's beautiful Gina. The Crater Lake is the most magical place in the world! I've been there 35 years ago. It was winter and of course lots of snow. We slept outside in our extremely well developed sleeping bags. Like in your picture the atmosphere was very calm. I've never seen it in September. I'm sure it looks beautiful on the wall in this size!

  2. Thank you! I'm so glad that you've been to Crater Lake. It really is one of the most amazing places I've seen. That was daring of you to camp in the winter time - it's a high elevation and it gets very cold. I'm a little jealous of your adventure!
