I suppose that if there had been tripod holes we could not have taken this shot from more exactly the same position. We even both usedPentax 67cameras.

Of greater interest than this coincidence is how similar yet how different these images are. I often write about the importance of light in determining how a photograph will appear. In this case the position of the sun played a big role in making this scene appear as differently as it does.

I thought that you might enjoy comparing these two images as much as I did. Nothing more profound than that.
