Storm on the Mountain
Photo Location: Northen Colorado 
Posted By: Colorado CJ, 11-25-2013, 08:36 PM

Here are a few shots I got while my nephew and I were out hiking a couple weeks ago. The winds were really blowing, to say the least (70+ mph) I got knocked off my feet during a couple of gusts and my tripod didn't work too well. The winds blew the heavy duty tripod right over (luckily I caught my camera before it hit the ground).

Despite all that, It was a fun day on the mountain. I'll take rain, snow or high winds any day in the high country compared to the best of days in the flat lands

These were shot with my Mamiya RB67 medium format film camera. Taken on Foma 100 and developed in Rodinal at 50:1

CJ, I'm glad we have tough people like you to take these photos, heck I froze just looking at the first one, had to turn up the heater. Great shots.

now that looks cold, nice work & I think the BW works well. - you are far too dedicated, I think twice about going out if it looks like it might rain a little

Wonderful series of images CJ. You were lucky not to have damaged your camera. Super in B&W.

Truly dramatic stuff, CJ. I'm very impressed with the B&W conversions - foreboding and forbidding looking place.
