New old images

I finally took a whole lot of film away to be processed, and have started scanning some of it.  This is a slow process, as I am also very busy with work things at the moment, but it will gradually result in more and more images appearing.  It is perhaps particularly appropriate that I’m able to post these things just now, when I’ve not been able to get out to make photographs for the last four weeks because I’ve been unwell.

I had thought I would try and keep to Alan Ross’ ‘PostAPhotoFriday’ idea, but it’s been more like ‘PostAPhotoEveryFortnightIfIHaveTheTime’!  Still, this is my offering for today, some autumn colours from the Isle of Mull:

Ardalanish Bay; Paps of Jura on the horizon

Ardalanish Bay; Paps of Jura on the horizon

The Paps of Jura in the distance were remarkably clear.  This was made with my Mamiya medium format camera, on Velvia 50 film, and slightly over-exposed (deliberately, I mean!).  I love that the film doesn’t dramatically blow out the highlights except for the area of the sun itself.  Rather it just gracefully moves off in lovely soft tones into complete whiteness.

I think this one is going on my wall…!
