This photo is from a series from some of my crazy, extreme photo adventures I  had photographing Mountains "Alpinists " and rock climbers. This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

Superb Michel lucky to have so much snow for photography

It seems you have now "the day after" type of weather

Merci Henry,
 
Winter photography is excellent here. There is always a balance between going out into the cold and picture opportunities.
 
Here, we clearly remember that Voltaire once described Québec as “quelques arpents de neige”. 
 
A few acres of snow.
 
We have made some progress since the days of Voltaire. He never visited, so we can discount him a little.
 
Bonne année pour 2018.

Quite difficult, it was around 7PM in a very dark evening.

However no crop, the grain maybe is due to developer I used (R09) or/and the scan.

Usually the Kentmere 400 is very very similar to an Ilford HP5 Plus (someone says that is actually the old HP5 formula)

Thank you so much, Henry. I notice that when temperature get well below freezing, the air seems to be perfectly clear. It is a real festival for the eyes, if the rest of the body can be persuaded to ignore the discomfort. The shadows seem a bit harder, too. In my youth I was advised by an instructor, Mr. IL Woong Kim, " Ignore discomfort....Cold build tenacity. Good comes from tenacity." As far as photography is concerned, I think he was right.

 

Thanks again.

 

Best,

 

Wayne

Well, what do you know...  there's even one with a book in hand. That is a pretty rare sight too !

I keep waiting for somebody to declare the public use of a cell phone as.....tacky........passe'. I have always seen France as the guidepost for classy behavior. The revolution should start there.

 

Henry, will you lead the charge?

 

Best,

 

Wayne

A good time and place to reflect on life and spend some time with the wife.

Simply wonderful, Michael!

 

This is a section of the Lachine Canal, near Montreal.
 
The St Lawrence River is the major water route to the centre of North America. There is a rapids just up river from Montreal (at Lachine), which required building a canal in the 18th century. Over the years the old canal has been replaced with ever larger waterways, but this is part of Canada’s story.
 
We are concentrated currently on staying warm – we are in the middle of a serious deep freeze. I woke up to –30C.

 

 

Very nice, Henry.  You are getting closer!  Nice!

Welcome to the forum. The photographs are beautiful. I see these were taken in California, and that the kids are wearing heavy coats. So, it must be, what....50 degrees?

 

Best,

Thanks Wayne. Haha, yeah it was like 56 I think.

Thank you, NYC is a candy store for photography for sure.  San your camera just about any place and show it to the world and they can talk your ear off about how they ere there once and wish they could go back.  That's the somewhat of a unique emotion that NYC photography elicits from people.   It's a crutch for the photographically challenged - and I milk it for everything I can

 

Hey Carlos - great bright, crisp photos with lovely Ektar colors.  Keep up the great work and hope to see more of your photos here!

 

Thanks, Henry.  I am in agreement with you not he Ektar!

 

Thanks, Philip.  Once case in which persistence paid off

 

Very interesting, Wayne.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts around this.  Park Avenue between the upper 40s and the lower 60s showcases outdoor art pretty much all the time.  The displays rotate every few months.  This sculpture was featured during the Spring months of last year.   My sense is that this type of art is made to be showcased outdoors and there really aren't that many prominent outdoor "art galleries"  - Park Avenue is up their on the top of the list!  Just think about the volume of views from all of the hundreds of thousand tourists, not to mention the saturation of "top 1%'er" that trek Park Avenue every day.  Like that famous Sinatra song, "if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere...it's up to you New York. New York..........."

 

Mega good, Patrick.  You might consider the leveling; on my screen it looks like it could benefit from a slight tilt to the right.  But really love the shot!

 

Thank you Adam. Looking at everyone's posts here is a lot of fun.
