My family house borders a state park, which serves as the boat launch for Pickerel Lake. Across the street is a section of the Salmon River (CT) State Park, so we have lots of wildlife and forest habitat around us. I decided to head down to the lake after an early Spring snowfall with my Fuji GA645zi, with a red filter attached and loaded with Kodak TMax 400. I set the ISO at 50 since the Fuji does not have a meter that uses the lens, then put it on aperture priority.
The snow had finished and the sun was beginning to come out, so I knew the snow on the trees would be falling off and melting pretty quick. Film was developed in Rodinal 1+25.
I love the way the ripples in the water on this shot turned out.

I also tried out my camera’s remote shutter release, which I didn’t even know it had. It accepts the old-school mechanical shutters, but since it uses the new-school method of half-depress to focus, I wasn’t exactly sure how it would work. So I got a blurry selfie.
