Scotland Episode 3 - Ilford FP4+
A long time black and white shooter, I take my film out to the beach and see what I can find amongst the rocks. I am also inspired by Micheal Kenna, and head out to find some long exposures by the sea.

Scotland Episode 2 - Kodak EKTAR 100
I have always wanted to shoot colour negative film, and Ektar seemed the natural place to start. See how I get on at a quiet and calm loch, and find out whether I fulfil a dream I have had for many years.
