Monochrome Monday… Silver Birch and Mother Cap

Silver Birch and Mother CapSilver Birch and Mother Cap
Olympus OM-1N, Zuiko-T 135mm f/3.5, 1/250s, f8 – Ilford FP4 Plus rated at ISO 100
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 10 mins at 20°c.

A (just) pre-lockdown image and another from my recently returned Olympus OM-1N but this time using a lens that rarely sees any action, the Zuiko Auto-T 135mm f/3.5.

Silver Birch trees (Betula pendula) are common on the ‘Edges’ in the Peak District but I can never resist photographing them…

The ‘Mother Cap’ stone sits high above the abandoned gritstone quarries on Millstone Edge and is very popular with climbers.
