It was a mind blowing expreiance to be able to go and photgraph it in about 1998
Here is a cyanotype on water color I made of the image
cyanotype is a photographic printing process that gives a cyan-blue print.
The English scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel discovered this procedure in 1842. Though Herschel is perhaps the inventor of the cyanotype process, it was Anna Atkins, a British scientist, who brought the process into the realm of photography. She created a limited series of cyanotype books that documented ferns and other plant life. By using this process, Anna Atkins is regarded as the first female photographer.
