Second Roll of Kosmo Mono 100, in Dundas Ontario

First off I love Kosmo Mono 100, and personally think it shines in Rodinal 1+50 for 7.5 minutes at 68f/20c. We had a mid winter thaw, it wasn't great for skiing and some friends thought it would be cool to hike into the bottom of Websters Falls in Dundas. I haven't been there in years, dug out the 49mm ND filters and went with my Olympus OM-2n, I wanted decent metering and give Kosmo Mono 100 a workout.

Well, we didn't make it to Webster's Falls. The trails in Spencer Gorge were very icy to the point in some stretches we would be taking our personal safety in our hands. We photographed what we saw on the way and turned right around. The idea of a shattered pelvis being the best case scenario along with trashed camera gear gave us a collective, "Nope, we're not risking our ass for the shot."

Kosmo Mono 100 shined even when the lighting went on the flat side and loves Zuiko glass. Kosmo Foto is getting more in February and a lot more later in the spring. For sure I'm getting more at some point for Summer shooting.

Camera: Olympus OM-2n, Zuiko MC 50 f1.8 lens.
Film: Kosmo Mono 100, Rodinal 1+50 for 7.5 min at 20c.
