Nikon F4: T-max 400 at 320. Kodak D76 1+1.
You could be forgiven for thinking this was the Yorkshire moors near where I live when in UK; but it was made on a very wet day at Jebel Shams.
I remember, because there had been a rock fall and a late friend of mine suggested we go and see if it was possible for us to depart the mountain. No such luck.
I was now faced with a trip on a helicopter and that is one form of transport I do not like …! well I also include the C130 (if I wanted to fly those I’d have joined the paratroops) but at least I will get on one if needs must .
But a helicopter at 10,000 ft is pushing the limits………

wonderful and atmospheric
Despite the rain….. it was a good day for photography; reminiscent of Padley Woods (my wife lived in the old water mill as a girl)
wow, one of my hunting grounds for long exposures (of water that is). I assume you mean the mill by the bridge just down from grindleford cafe 🙂
I do, we haven’t been back since her Dad died.
Your images as bringing back memories…. 🙂
don’t get many days like this, when I am able to photograph ‘in’ the rain; the storm was lower down the mountain so relatively safe.
What a beautiful image. Really powerful.
Thank you Shimon,
Your comment is appreciated very much.
Misty magic. Superb image. REally wonderful. I could stare at this for hours. It’s amazing how this image moves the view from the clarity of the foreground into the foggy background. It’s a bit like moving from waking to dreaming. Wonderful!!!
One of those opportune moments, when having the camera and ignoring the weather gave me the image.
Great example of the right balance of light & dark for a monochrome.
I particularly like the portrait size (as opposed to landscape). Seeing that vertical range of rock, texture & mist receding in the distance makes a really good image.
Thankfully the F4 does not worry about a little rain; but I did – sat in the Landrover and set the exposure then out, quick compose – so was lucky.
Must have been one of these rare days. Very good!
Love the mist in this one David and it is framed beautifully. Very atmospheric. I’m with you regarding helicopters, I didn’t even like going out to Fahal Island in one 🙂
I once looked up at a big yellow one and said no – I’ll walk out.
