Black and white where the autumn colours burns?

Yes! And I’ll explain my choise.

It was an overcast dull day, so color film was not an option really. But in the very soft light, the leaves of all the small trees that were in all different levels shimmered in bright yellow hues, so I thought that black and white film would be perfectly with fine gray scales. And I think that my choice was good.
The camera is my large format camera which I gradually start to get to know.
Nice acquaintance so far. Now in the winter coming, I will spend a lot of time getting to know the camera “movements”.

Both images is from a beech wood last week.

Enjoy!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Marie, I love both equally and for different reasons. The first one has some wonderful detail on the trees in those knots and whorls. The second one is just magical, whimsical and ethereal. The leaves lend a softness to the harder lines of the tree limbs. They are both just beautiful. What a great job with the Wista!!

    • Thank you so very much Joey!
      It is actually yet quite scary with all the knobs and sticks to move in the right direction, so I’m kinda proud that they turned out so well…
      The three oaks in the first one looks a bit out of place among all the beeches, but they blend in really well…
      Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Fantastic range of tones throughout both pictures. FP4 is such a lovely film – I’ve just bought 10 rolls for my Hasselblad! Unfortunately it won’t stop raining here!
