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

I forgot to mention: I've been in contact recently with Adam Miller, who was for so long a strong and passionate contributor here, and he asked me to pass on his best regards to all here on "I Like Film". Adam of course moderates a group on Instagram called Leica & Film Friends. I know many here are active contributors to it, but for those who don't know it, and are on Instagram, I encourage you to check it out.

You are getting on famously with your Rollei Phil, lovely muted colours and a real sense of 'wind' in this photo.

I'm working on it Charles/Phil, but there seems to be precious little info out there. There could be a plaque there now, next time I go there I will check.

I found someone else had taken some shots, and uploaded them with the following info:

"This artwork includes a set of pre=cast concrete pou as well as two maumahara (canoe cenotaphs) with a giant eel trap (hinaki) strung between. The artwork references the natural geographical landmarks of Pukemore mountain and Lake Kimihia"

Not my info, cut and pasted from a F/B post.
