Mini winter landscapes

As mentioned in my previous post, I absolutely love the winter landscapes of the Lake Superior North Shore. As a sort of continuation of this previous series, here a series of close(r) up landscapes (landscape details) of the snowy Lake Superior forrest.

Some of these images have been posted on Instagram.

While there are many stocks I like, thus far, the Rollei black and white films, in particular Rollei RPX 25 and Rollei Retro 80S are among my favorites (for 35mm, I haven’t tried those for 120 yet).

I experimented with a different developer for the Rollei Retro 80S (Ilford DD-X), see images below. I think the images turned out okay, but in hindsight, I probably should have used the same developer that I used previously (Kodak HC-110).

  1. I especially like the photos which include some very fine-textured material along with larger structures and snow. In one photo, I can tell that the fine material is moss. I can’t identify the other fine material; it’s in the second photo from the top in the Rollei RPX 25 135 series (35mm).

    1. You are a keen observer, Becky! I think the fine material you are referring to and possibly also the moss is lichen, which is not uncommon in the woods in this area.
