Beenkeragh Ridge, Macgillycuddy Reeks, Co Kerry, Ireland (Print)

Took a few days off work during the week and went to Kerry to do some walking in the mountains. This is a view from the summit of Beenkeragh looking towards Carrantuohill which I had just come from. As per usual I didn't get a view of Carrantuohill as it was in the cloud but took this one of the ridge (waited around 30 minutes for the clouds to go away to give me this view).... A super days walking, the Coomloughera horse shoe walk must be one of the best walks in the country In my opinion...

 

Not enough contrast in the negative... Just used strong developer and dev'd the paper for around 15 seconds before snatching it. Took a few goes to get it. Its still not 100% how I want it, might try printing it again when I get better at printing...

 

Nikon F100, 24-70 lens, Red filter

Film was Tmax 400 dev'd in Rodinal. Paper is Ilford MGFB, Paper developer was Ilford MG. Toned in Sepia and Gold to try to make the highlights lighten a bit more...
