Bronica SQ-A + Zenzanon 80mm f2.8 + Fuji Vevlia 100 + Epson v500 Scanner (Cumbria, 2016)

I’d not been to the lake district since a child, so I gathered some mates and drove up there with the aim of climbing Scarfell Pike (Englands highest mountain). The scenery driving into the park was magical, there was dense mist and fog hanging off the hills, with sheep sauntering nonchalantly by the side (and in) the road. As we drove further in, along the side of Wastwater lake, I was stunned by symmetry created by the reflection and the mist.

Whilst I enjoy this picture, it highlights to me again how Velvia is not a forgiving film to use. This image was maybe underexposed by a stop and a third, and thats what adds the purple bias in the colours. I think I made the mistake of metering this photo from my Nikon D7100 in matrix mode, when spot would have been much more appropriate. Will the increasing cost of processing E6 and my lackluster results with slide film to date, this may be the last roll of Velvia I shoot for a while.
