I’ve just finished scanning several rolls of film that I’ve developed in the last few weeks and started looking throgh them in Lightroom. Even though I done some prescans and made contact sheets, I still find this exciting. Maybe not, watching the image emerge in the deve tray exciting, but enjoyable none the less. Anyway, here are a couple that caught my eye straight away. Sledging in Derbyshire last winter and my nephew on his Dad’s shoulders at Alnmouth in November. I’ve got some paper ordered and will start printing again next week…
We went for a walk around Fountains Abbey yesterday afternoon and the Abbey itself was less crowded than usual. As it was a family outing I didn’t have a tripod, but that gave me the unexpected opportunity to take some photos in dark places handheld.The first picture is one of 3 or 4 frames that I took, and I was pleased when the flock of gulls flew by at an opportune moment.

This view in the cloisters was very dark and there is very little left in the window, but the atmosphere is nicely preserved.
At the other side of the cloister a bare cross stands in front of the window
