Having just processed a couple of rolls of film, 1 Adox
Which film to choose? Well, in this two-horse race it’s neck and neck. Fuji for it’s reciprocity stability and Adox for it’s biting tonal clout. We 35mm film users are blessed to have such a choice!
Dartmoor Ponies, Merrivale, Dartmoor National Park June 2015
Dartmoor ponies are feisty, scruffy, smelly creatures with loads of character. This mare and her colt displayed great affection for each other. You can’t help but be captivated by them! Leica MP, 90mm Elmarit-M f2.8 with K2 filter, Adox Silvermax.
Horse Gin, Magpie Mine, Peak District National Park, November 2014.
This is a replica horse gin as would have been used to bring ore to the surface during the Magpie mine’s heyday. The thunderstorm was retreating north eastwards. It would have a been boring work for the horses, the little Dartmoors above must be eternally grateful for their semi-wild existence by comparison. Leica MP, 90mm Elmarit-M f2.8, Fuji Across 100 with O22 filter.
