Newhaven harbour, Mamiya RB67, Ilford Pan F 50, bad weather 02022020.

02/02/2020 #PalindromeDay. I had a couple of hours to head out in the afternoon, so I popped over to Newhaven, East Sussex, the weather was extremely windy, damp, unpleasant, loads of sea-spray, overcast, dull, glum not so perfect for photography.

Had my Mamiya RB67 and a roll of Ilford Pan F plus 50 120.

Parked down by the harbour wall first.

1st photo
Lens - Mamiya Sekor C 90mm f/3.8
On the beach to the right of the harbour wall, wind was straight in my face causing loads of sea spray all over the camera lens and filters, was surprised it came out as clean as it did.

2nd photo
Lens - Mamiya Sekor C 90mm f/3.8
Memorial flowers tied to the gate of the harbour wall being batted by the strong winds.

After these 2 photo I drove up the hill to the Newhaven Fort car park and headed further up Fort Hill where you get a lovely view looking over Newhaven harbour entrance and over the Seaford.

The roll of Ilford Pan F 50 was then developed at home using Ilford Ilfosol 3 for 4 minutes 30 seconds and scanned with my Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner and tweaked in Lightroom.
