Like your idea, but Graham would have to arrange the weather too, which 
COULD be a tall order. He could charge by the cloud! :-)

Personally I prefer the color shot Graham took of this scene (in 
landscape), but wish he had used the Minilux for the B&W and the 35 'Cron 
for the color so that the textures might have been richer and possibly the 
shadow detail even greater. I know..., you can't put a green filter on a 
Minilux! :-) Perfect exposure in this shot too. It really DOES look like 
this over there. Maybe that's the reason I prefer this color version. It 
seems really accurate and makes me feel like getting on a plane.
