A trail of trees

This was taken with my Minolta Dynax 7 using my Minolta 28mm f2.8 @F8 on Ilford PanF 50, stand developed in Rodinal and scanned on my Epson 4990.

Was out for a drive with the little man in the countryside Sunday on a super hot day here in Perth. There were massive bush fires on the horizon. He’d fallen a sleep in the car by this point so I was just pulling the car over when I saw things that struck my interest and quickly snapping before jumping back in the car and continuing on. We had been out for a few hours and the weather was changing so I was making our way home, but I really wanted to finish this roll so I could dev. it that arvo once we got home. I made a move to a few locations that are favorites of mine for shooting that I have not visited for a few years on my way back home. I do love this spot. It’s changed a bit and has a lot more dumped refuse since my last visit as you con see at the bottom of the frame. However it’s still a great spot.

Earlier in the day I had finished a roll of kodak hd400 in this camera and had decided to load a roll of Ilford PanF 50, as I remembered my mate Boris talking about how great it was for hot, bright summer days, especially if stand dev’d in Rodinal. Considering it was a 38 degree day here it was probably a good choice. This was shot using spot metering, though I did switch to zone metering after this and that did result in more blown out highlights, so mental note to self shoot this spot metered for best results I believe.
