Pacific Tides
My name is Thomas Sturm and I'm a programmer, photographer and writer.

Now go outside and look at the sky.


Every now and then I go back and re-scan some older negatives that haven't received the full-sized medium format scan treatment yet.

Almost three years ago we went on an epic road trip through a large part of Arizona and Utah and among many other amazing places we spent a day in Monument Valley. It was a glorious morning with a quite remarkable sunrise over the distinctive rock formations of the valley.

We drove along the self-guided road that passes through the park and took many pictures. I had brought my Kodak Medalist, but for some reason it felt even more cumbersome than usual to use, so I only shot one roll of 620 film on that morning, which was probably a mistake since the wide landscape with the harsh lighting conditions was perfect for the Medalist's lens. Here is one of the eight shots on that roll.
