A big tree by Clumber Lake

Adox Silvermax has quite a pleasant grain to it. It’s more prominent in this shot because it was a little underexposed. The clouds ‘pop’ nicely in the sky thanks to the red filter too.

Black & White

I liked the contrast of the white gulls on shore and the darker ducks (mostly) on the water. The red filter has darkened the grass to add more contrast too.

High contrast house

I shot a roll of Adox Silvermax recently. I’ve shot this before and had lovely results, but the negatives for this roll came back pretty thin. Now, I’ve had this occur a few times with different films, and I tend to like the high contrast look I get from the underexposed results – as I do with today’s photo.

Still, I’d rather they’d come out properly exposed. Maybe I need to change the battery in the camera?

The Chapel of St. Mary the Virgin

The main reason for my visit to Clumber Park at the weekend was to take shots of this church – the photo comp I’m in has ‘churches’ as November’s subject, and this is a nice church in scenic surroundings.

Flowers in the greenhouse

After a couple of rolls of Fomapan 100, I decided to try some colour film in the Mess-Ikonta and, at the weekend, I paid another trip to Clumber Park and, again, ventured into the walled kitchen garden and glasshouse, where I found this nice little scene.
