Pinyon Pine and Sandstone © Lynn RadekaWe sometimes come across a photographer whose work makes us wonder just where we should start. We found Lynn Radeka through his poster photography, which features work he has done for the National Parks. The cost of these is certainly very reasonable, especially if they really are duotones, in the sense of monotones printed with two shades of black ink. That someone should go this far to achieve a certain look on a $20 poster is extraordinary. Spot varnish on the image area, to give brilliance and bring out the tonal depth, is the icing on the cake. The picture in our thumbnail is entitled 'Pinyon Pine and Sandstone'.

The feature is available for viewing in Lynn's current work gallery, and was taken near Grant, New Mexico, a place we have yet to locate. After looking through the different galleries, and realizing that the site uses frames technology, which made it a bit naughty for us to target content minus the sidebar frame, we decided just to pick one image then leave you to explore on your own. Sorry to niggle, but we think frames are often just a shortcut for lazy web authors to do half a job; but then we are as fussy about what we do as Lynn is about what he does.
