Nikon F-301, Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 Ai-S, 1/500s, f16 – Ilford Delta 400 Professional rated at ISO 800
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 10½ mins at 20°c.

An image from last January, shoppers cast shadows along Fargate in Sheffield…

Even with the 105mm’s built-in lens hood there’s still a reduction in contrast and a little flare but I quite like it.

A view of Montrose (road) Bridge seen from beneath the South Esk Rail Viaduct in October 2022.

The pretty uninspiring road bridge opened to traffic in 2004 and replaced a much more visually interesting structure dating from 1930. The 1430ft long South Esk Rail Viaduct was built by the North British Railway (NBR) in 1881 and carries a single-track section of the Edinburgh-Aberdeen main line.
