Learning the M2 – colour

A random collection from my ‘new’ Leica M2, shot with Kodak Portra 160 and 400, and Fujifilm Pro400H. I enjoyed all three films but I think from now on I’ll be sticking with Portra 400.

Shot with a VM 35/f2.5 Color Skopar, VM 50/f1.5 Nokton and ‘fat’ Leica 90/f2.8 Tele Elmarit.

The black and white set can be found here.

The Overland Diaries pt.XXII – of snow and rain

It’s been a strange start to the season, especially considering the almost arid seasons we’ve had recently. Winter pushed almost all the way up to christmas, and spring seems to be making it’s way steadily through what should be mid-summer. We had more snow through October than all of our ‘winter’ trips combined, and mid-January has seen the waterfalls at full-flow.

The Overland Diaries pt.XX – fungi season

Late season is fungi season on the Overland Track, and it’s fair to say it’s one of my favourite times to be up in the mountains.

If you look carefully you’ll find fungi in the park at pretty much any time of the year, as long as there is moisture, shade and some old organic material, but it’s late summer and early autumn, in the deep, cool rainforests of the Upper Mersey and Upper Forth valleys where they really put on a show.

All shot with the surprisingly versitile Ricoh GR. I have no idea what any of them are called (except the first; a Strawberry Bracket) so if there’s any mushroom experts out there let me know in the comments!
