Located well above the tourist trap Clifton Hill by Niagara Falls sits a lovely spiritual retreat named after a relatively well-known mountain in Israel. It features prominently in the story of the prophet Elijah, namely the contest he challenges the prophets of Ba’al to in the Book of Kings. I came across the retreat while looking for a spot to park my car as I was planning on a bit of light trespassing at a historic transformer station just down the road. Also, this was the first sheet of film I shot with my new-to-me Pacemaker Crown Graphic; I know, taking a risk, but the camera’s in mint condition, and the lens checked out on all shutter speeds. However, I left all my light meters at home (stoops!) and ended up using an application on my iPhone, which decided to meter the trees rather than the building itself. But despite that, I still kind of like it!
