Walking the Old Military Road

Tentsmuir Forest and Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve are in north east Fife, Scotland. Covering some 50 square miles (130 km2), the forest was originally sand dunes and moorland before acquisition by the Forestry Commission in the 1920s. The forest consists mainly of Scots Pine and Corsican Pine.

An image from my archives. This was taken in April 2011. Particularly beautiful skies and silence in the air I remember well. You really do get some beautiful light on the east coast of Scotland.

Ilford XP2 in the Olympus XA

These images were shot a while back on Ilford XP2 400 film. The film doesn’t produce the most contrasty black and white images you’ll ever see but the shadow details seem quite nice and the overall tone of the images seems pretty balanced. Whether that was the camera or the film is debatable.

Experimentation with the Lomography Sprocket Rocket

Photographs from the Sprocket Rocket on expired Kodak Gold 200 film. Some interesting colours and light leaks. Tweaked the saturation a little and some exposure settings but not a great deal. The colours really pop!

Stormy Weather (re–edit)

This is a re–edit of a previous photograph that I posted last year. I didn’t think I had managed to get the exposure and contrast the way I wanted and the new image shows the drama more clearly. I think it’s also closer to what I had seen. The heavens opening and the sun breaking through creating an amazing contract between the dark clouds and their sunlit edges.

I’ve also given it a closer crop, giving a greater sense of scale with the man walking along the beach close to the edge of the frame with the other two thirds dominated by the clouds.
