This was taken a few weeks ago while out on a hike through the local backcountry.  Spring is fading away, and wildfires are already beginning to rear their flames.  The plants here are more lush than they have been in some time – we had a bit of rain!

Saber Lilies - Ilford HP5

The day I went out to shoot the black and white film – specifically, Ilford HP5 – I also went out with colored filters, to see how they would affect things. Well, I forget what order I did what in, so . . . that was a bust! Still, there are some nice pictures in the lot. I am not sure if I like Ilford HP5 – perhaps to grainy for my taste, and perhaps too contrasty. Nonetheless, I am super pleased with the results of the processing, and the results of scanning in the Pakon 135 scanner. Also, I thought I had used the Werra, but thinking back, I used the Nikon FM2n with the 50mm f1.4 ais lens. The day was bright and sunny.
