Another view of the local botanical gardens. Today’s image is much sharper than yesterday’s – less muddy from a bit of blur. Again, Weltur, Ilford, and Xenar.
It seems the Xenar is quite good at handling contrast. The LR historgram shows both in its display. As well, the Epson V600 handles C-41 processed B&W film with Digital Ice – very little clean up done in post. With one roll of the XP Super film left, I am tempted to get some more . . .
Great in black and white, but a knockout in color.
I always want to photograph this section of a trail in my neighborhood. I think this one finally captures it . . .
“Rest and Be Thankful” was the name of a book by Helen McInnes I read years ago. It came to me as the perfect title for this image – it was a lovely place to sit and be quiet, glad for being able to enjoy the beauty around me.
As with many seasonal creeks, the height of water comes and goes, depending on the rainfall. To prevent erosion, boulders have been dropped alongside the creek, which helps keep overflow contained as the stream wends its way to Paradise Falls a few miles away.
Again, the Nikon Df with the Vivitar Series 1 135mm f2.3 lens.
