Charlie - beautiful set! The sky is so dramatic and the landscape is amazing. Love the ghost town/mine too. Very cool to be able to find something like that. When would that mine have been operational and what were they mining? .

"The quest for wealth buried inside the mountains at Boulder Basin dates back to 1879 with the filing of the first mining claim. In a report written by Victoria Mitchell that the Idaho Geological Survey published 15 years ago, the total recorded production for the mines in Boulder Basin between 1884 and 1949 amounted to nearly 8,000 tons of ore and several hundred tons of old tailings. The processing of this raw material yielded 610 ounces of gold, 111,620 ounces of silver, 48,094 pounds of copper and 1.3 million pounds of lead. Between 1884 and 1894, one estimate put production value at $1 million for a block of claims known as the Golden Glow group.
The wealth didn’t come without difficulty, however. The survey report notes that the area was characterized by “complex and divided ownership” and marked by complications brought on by litigation and bankruptcy.
In one instance, a partnership formed in the 1930s between J.A. Schultz and a Canadian firm ended in futility and rancor. Schultz, who at the time leased several claims, wrote that besides the foreign entity breaking Idaho business and mining laws, it “refused to give men a bathhouse or change house, kept powder in where the men eat, refused to pipe water for drinking.” Amidst other assertions, “approximately 10 diamond drill holes were put down, all shallow holes, all missed vein except one, due to their engineers rotten figuring. All told, a waste of money.”

when the lens is coded or set to be a 21 pre-asph, well that's what it looks like I have not used cornerfix or anything like that. I do correct for distortion in LR with a SEM 18 profile, but this has no effect on color cast---I don't think.
