Funny what can happen in the space of a week. I could not believe the amount of ice build up on the West Credit River Falls. I did some long exposure work by slowing the shutter on the camera to about quarter of a second at F11. I used my old Nikkormat Ftn, most people are blown away that I would be using a 40 year old camera but the vertical metal copal shutter works fine in -12c and colder. I used Fomapan 200 rated at 125 EI and processed in 1+50 Rodinal for 10 minutes. All the below shots were taken in Belfountain Conservation Area in Belfountain Ontario.

Sorry for the silence, I was out taking pictures. This winter has provided me with tons of inspiration so far. I have been taking my Nikon FM and three lens kit up skiing every weekend and below is only the beginning. I belong to the Caledon Ski Club and it's located in what I best describe as Middle Earth, well Belfountain Ont.

The bottom shot was done with Adox CHS 100 processed in Rodinal 1:50 an taken on the "Old Chair Hill" on Caledon Ski Club property. The shots above were on Plus X processed in Xtol 1+1 and taken within the Belfountain Conservation Area. But wait there is more on the way, I have two rolls of Fomapan 200 waiting to be processed. Please stay tuned for more winter photography at it's finest.
