OH BOTHER, MK Davis is back at it again. As if we didn't already know this, MK....
Here is a recently-emerged frame from the film with the truest-to-life colors I've ever seen:
|The true colors of the plants, trees and sand on the Bluff Creek sandbar.|
* The film was shot in 1967, October 20th, at shortly after noon (approximately 1:00 p.m., but unverified by a watch at the time). At this time of day that shadow length is totally natural at that time of year. As stated above, MK offers no time of day nor date on the year for his comparison photo, and he certainly wasn't standing on the correct film site besides.
|The Big Tree in June 2012, surrounded by green-stage vine maples.|
His colors are being observed in somewhat degraded images from film copies. The natural colors are shifted somewhat. After that he intentionally manipulated cookies trying to show blood where there was none. Absurd.
|A crop of that frame from the film.|
|MK Davis' scan take from Patricia Patterson's transparency. Note the degradation of reds, yellows and browns.|
|A photo from Tony Healy in 1978, showing the colors of foliage on the site, the vine maples not yet turned red.|
|Me just downstream from the site in August. This is what the foliage looks like that time of year.|
Behind me are alders, vine maples, broadleaf maples, Douglas fir, and rhododendrons and ferns.
