From Bluffer’s Beach a couple of weeks ago. The low angled early morning sun was amazing.

Last Monday at Bluffer’s Park I noticed these plants. I liked the backlighting on them but the glare of the sun plus the breeze moving the plants around made for tricky shooting and it took a few attempts to get these two images using my Nikon F4 and 28mm lens, shooting on Rollei RPX film
Today I’m posting one more image from Bluffer’s Beach on January 1st, 2017. It was originally shot in black and white (the only film I had with me), but the image really didn’t work that way, so I added so hand tinting with pencil crayons to a inkjet print.

For a few years now I have made it my own little ritual to go out for a shoot on the morning of January 1st. That way, no matter what else happens, I can say the new year is another year in which I have some at least some photography. 🙂 This morning I went to Bluffer’s Park Beach in Toronto. A shore symbolizes time to me: the waves and water are eternal, and the shore is always changing.

So the last roll that has some pictures of the Scarborough Bluffs has been developed. I like the way the rock thrust itself into the morning sun. Hasselblad 500C/M, 80mm/2.8 Planar lens with red filter Rollei RPX25 film, developed in Rodinal
The early morning on a sunny day is the best time to see the cliffs at the Scarborough Bluffs; the light colour really picks up the sunlight, and using a red filter darkens the sky to produce a dramatic contrast.
