Getting to the battery at shortly after 8 a.m. gave me just the light I'd hoped for, strong raking light that pulled all the cracks and fissures out of the concrete. The only drawback to this is the morning sun created a very high contrast situation, but this is where the view camera excels. The first dozen or so exposures I made were deliberately over-exposed, then under-developed in the darkroom, thereby keeping the contrast down to a reasonable level. Using an orange filter kept the sky printable, but did lead to a 1/2 second exposure at f/22.
