Storm clouds.

Nikon F4 with  Tokina 35-70 f2.8 AIs AT-X lens on Ilford HP5 400 pushed to 800.
Storm clouds over derelict farm house.

Update: I kept looking at the grain in this image scan and thinking, it doesn’t look right for a T-Max 400 film; I was right.

It was in fact Ilford HP5 developed in Rodinal: the confusion arose because this image was at the end of a series I had made of storm clouds. I changed over to T-Max ( having run out of Ilford) and continued, but kept the negatives together as they were all of the same subject. That will teach me to pay more attention to the edge markings, getting lazy !! with using my Nikon Df/800 and always having the metadata confirm what my settings were.

    1. Thank you John, it’s not a developer I used much in Oman, not sold there, infact almost no traditional film products available now. Also being a liquid, I had trouble bringing it back from UK.

  1. Hello David
    This large, broad, vaporous cloud seems to descend gently to come and wrap this abandoned farm.
    This image could be that of a book whose story is yet to be invented, the beginning of something new
