Misty morning along the river: Oxford

Written by Nasir Hamid on October 17th, 2011

The mornings during last week have been quite misty and the light during sunrise has been quite amazing but the only time I’ve been able to enjoy it is on my cycle ride to work. That was until the weekend. I got up especially early and braved the frosty temperature to enjoy the sunrise along the river Isis near Iffley Locke. Apart from a few joggers there was no one around and the peace and quiet was very relaxing. These images were all made with my large format 5×4 inch camera.

[Tech info]: Shen Hao 5×4 camera, 150mm lens, Fp4+ film processed in Rodinal (1:50) for 16mins, 20C.

Into the water.

The way back home.

Fade out.

Breaking through.

    Nasir! These are beautiful! I love them all. I just used a large format camera for the first time this weekend doing tintypes. I think I may be in the market for another camera. 😛

      Thanks so much 🙂
      Once you get under the dark cloth and see that upside down image on the ground glass screen there’s no going back, you’ll be hooked! Go for it while you can still get the film.
