The Bay of Fires


Its been quite some time since I posted anything but having taken nearly 18 months to build a new home, studio and an almost completed a darkroom in the last year time for blogging has been a sparse commodity. However I did take a few days off here and there that gave me some time to look around tassie and shoot about twenty films most of which are awaiting the arrival of a LAB BOX from a Kickstarter to dev the black and white. The colour film went off to a local lab THE ONLY C41 lab in Tasmania and they have done a reasonable job even though there is much more spotting to do than I would like. This was shot on Ektar on my 1949 Voigtlander Bessa Its a 6×9 version which is ideal for landscapes… This bay near St Helens is called the bay of fires because of the red and orange lichen on the rocks which under the right light gives the impression of fire on the rocky landscape.
