Galen Rowell in one of his books talks about the "The most memorable, mind-changing photograph of all time. A color landscape shot taken without a tripod by an amateur". Does anyone have a link to a copy of this or can explain what is special about it?

Earthrise by Apollo 8 Astronaut William Anders - sounds like he was advocating that sometimes all the training or equipment doesn't make a photograph good, but sometimes a subject can be just THAT inspiring.

As for equipment; Was this taken with the hasselblad? –  Jakub May 12 '11 at 18:00
    
this reminds me of "f8 and be there". also, hasselblad + zeiss lenses (hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a11/a11-hass.html). recently they've changed to adapted pro nikon gear. –  JoséNunoFerreira Dec 3 '12 at 21:26
