Our trip to the woods yesterday was gorgeous as always. The weather was just perfect around 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 Celsius). We both shot a roll of film before heading home. Once again, I was the one traipsing around in the mud to get the shot I wanted. Still you never know what you will end up with when you do crawl around in the mud. Here’s a shot from another trip where I was on my knees in the mud.
Here’s how I got this particular shot.
There are those times when crawling in the mud reaps its rewards (this digital image taken by our friends)
The black and white image was taken using the Mamiya 645 Pro TL, 80 mm Mamiya 1:2.8 Sekor Lens, Ilford HP5 @ 200 developed in D76 @ 1:1. Printed on Arista EDU Ultra VCFB in Moersch ECO 4812 . Scanned from the silver gelatin print.
The beautiful warmer tones were achieved with a combination of Selenium toner, Moersch bleach and a short immersion in Moersch MT3 Vario toner.

The weekend’s on our doorstep. Hope you all get out to enjoy it.
