Wampler Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Gaylon Wampler
Location: Monument, Colorado
Date: March 21, 1997

The photo was shot March 21st about an hour after sunset on Fuji Provia 100 slide film. The exposure was 25 seconds at f:1.4 using a canon EOS1 camera and 50mm lens.

I shot this cows and comet scene in the Rampart range of the Colorado Rocky mountains near Monument, CO. The full moon was rising to my back which helped ad some dramatic lighting to the landscape.
