This man is greeting the dawn, possibly at Cloud Cap Inn. Maybe someone knows what that two headed horn is called.
This print is a cyanotype. It is basically the same process as a blueprint, and was used for cheap photographic prints, especially proofs. The more traditional silver nitrate print uses more expensive materials than the cyanotype. Cyanotypes are very light sensitive so should never be displayed in normal light.
I don't think I have ever seen a horn like that. Could it have been something that he put together. I know they use this type of horn in the Alps, but haven't seen two of them put together.
I agree this is at the rock outcropping at Cloud Cap.

I can't wait to see who gets the answer to the name of the horn.
We have places that look just like this in Klickitat County, but the trees are pine.
The other night at the Sense of Place lecture, I was looking at some Edward Curtis photos. Todays photographers place a watermark on their photos. Did early photographers have something they could do to their negatives to protect against plagiarism?

Perhaps Malcolm Button soldered two Roman signal horns together.

How does one look up old pictures, such as #29? Been wandering around for two days trying to figure it out.

nels,.... see the link I posted above for Malcolm Button? Copy that link and paste it into your browser, hit return and the link will take you to Mal playing the trombone.
If you want to see #29, delete the numbers 273 and type in 29. Hit return and you will see the other Coe strawberry field. Or better yet, go back to yesterday and click on the link in Arthur's description. It will take you to #29.
Or you can click on the Tag "Coe" at the bottom of the photo.
I am sure Arthur has full intensions of including Mal Button playing the trombone, in the Tag "horn".

Someday when I have free time I need to change the comment field to allow embedded links. Don't hold your breath waiting for it though!
Arthur on 18th November 2016 @ 1:17pm
I wouldn't worry about it Arthur. Embedding links might just cause a lot of problems.
We do just fine.
