Nikon F-501, AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 – 1/60s, f5.6, – Foma Pan 200
Developed in Adox FX-39 II at 1:9, 10 mins at 20°c.

An image from my first roll of Foma Pan 200, also the first roll through a new to me Nikon F-501.

The Foma Pan 200/FX-39 II developer combination creates images with good contrast… ideal for a dreich January day!

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Throwback Thursday… Darley Dale station (Peak Rail)

HE class WD 0-6-0ST WD132 (originally works no.3163 of 1944)-20130112 (Peak Rail)
Hunslet class WD 0-6-0ST WD132 at Darley Dale (Peak Rail)
Nikon D600, Nikkor AF-S 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G at 40mm, 1/60s, f8, ISO 400

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Ten years ago it was this Hunslet class WD ‘Austerity’ 0-6-0ST steam locomotive at Darley Dale station at Peak Rail.

Peak Rail was one of the few heritage railways that ran trains in January and February but sadly they haven’t done so for a few years now… I’ll definitely be paying another visit when they do start running in March though!

Monochrome Monday… Shoppers, Fargate

Shoppers, Fargate
Shoppers, Fargate
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.
