An image from a recent ‘Photography Friday’ walk with Rachel along the banks of the River Derwent near Calver in the Peak District.

This is the point at which Stoke Brook flows into the river, home to Brook Lampreys, a primitive, eel-like fish with a sucker for a mouth… We didn’t see any though.

Here’s hoping that our jaunts (and the world in general) return to normal soon…

I’m still working my way through the digital images from my recent holiday to the Isle of Whithorn in Scotland. This scene caught my eye whilst I was enjoying a pint outside The Steam Packet Inn following a wander around the village.

I really must get the rolls of film I shot developed!

A shot from the digital archives tonight…

An unidentified class 377 ‘Electrostar’ electric multiple unit crosses Worthing Road at Angmering with the 19.32 Southern service from Portsmouth & Southsea (the 20.18 from Angmering) to Brighton on 20 May 2015. I didn’t have a tripod with me so rested my camera on top of a handy fence post and hoped for the best!

This pic cropped up tonight while I was looking for something else entirely, my archives definitely need a good sort out!

Fujica GW690 – 1/250s, f11, – Bergger Pancro 400

Some more films back from the lab today… This is another image from the Fujica GW 690 that I’ve currently got on loan and it’s on my first roll of Bergger Pancro 400 film.

It’s difficult to judge from just eight shots but the results from this film are quite soft (contrast-wise) which isn’t something I’m particularly used to… I’m pleased with the images though and will order a couple more rolls to experiment with.
