An ode to TMAX

It was my favorite film to shoot during 'those' days.  I don't know why, maybe the grain structure or the big dark contrast, or the way the blacks could really block up on you adding to that intense contrast .... I may actually never know, but in any event the TMAX look very much influenced the way I see B&W. 

With B&W I can focus on blacks and whites and shades of gray, structure, form, shapes and subtleties.  It becomes easier for me to tell the view exactly what it was that I saw and therefore, hopefully, easier for them to see what I saw. These 4 images from yesterday, developed in SEP using the TMAX filter and some of my own adjustments, were captured during my winter ride. 

I brought the trusty Trangia with just enough denatured alcohol to warm up my Snow Peak TI pots and make a lovely cup of tea.  It wasn't cold, but instead raw from the moisture in the air.  Having a cup of tea as I sat overlooking the water was a fitting way to end the day.
