This picture was made one afternoon along Halls Creek Rd in Waitpinga on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. Halls Creek Rd is part of the Heysen Trail, and I often walk along there on a late afternoon poodlewalk in the winter time. It's fenced on both sides of the road, it is protected from the southwesterly winds , and the western sunshine gently lights up the vegetation.
It's a pleasant walk in the late afternoon and I've made a number of photos/studies of the roadside vegetation along this section of the Heysen Trail. This was one of the first:
On this occasion I exposed some old Portra NC 160 ASA film that had been sitting in the 6x7 film back of the Linhof Tehnika 70 for 5 years or more. I thought that I'd better finish the roll of film and have it developed as I had nothing to lose. Though the negatives were a bit flat and the colours were washed out the digital files were okay when I scanned the film. Some of the pictures looked a bit odd, but I didn't mind.
I wanted to start using the baby Linhof again as the two film backs that go with it ----a 6x7 and a 6x9--- were useful for tree /bush studies that I was starting to do for the Fleurieuscapes project. After exposing the roll of film, and using the camera in the Kuitpo Forest, I went ahead and bought a more modern Linhof (Super Rollex) 6x9 film back.
