Mangerstadh, Cauldron

By hwatt  
Mangerstadh, Lewis, Scotland

A boiling seething mass of Atlantic ocean pummels the west coast of Lewis off the Scottish mainland and we sit on the cliff top with spume from the sea blowing clouds of foamy bubbles up the walls of the cliffs. This is Scotland's Apostles but these ones are more akin to Voldermort than the warm friendly sandstone stacks on the South Australian coastline. I prefer to shoot this type of landscape in layered light where light and shade play off against each other and render the landscape in three dimensions rather creating visual depth.

Pentax 67 II , 55-100 zoom, Fujichrome Velvia
unfiltered, f/22 at 1/2 Second.

Ian, this is a marvellous sample of landscape photography, due in part to shooting film MF. I almost bought the Pentax 67 but went for the 645 and shot it for more than 20 years, then moved to the 645D and use a combination of lenses from the 67 with a step-down adapter. I understand your passion for this camera even though many in this digital world with no film experience, can't begin to imagine shooting film.

You have my respect Ian, for your undaunting commitment to film. You deserve every great shot you get.

I'll second that - though my decision was to buy a 'Spotmatic on steroids' - having tried, I think, every medium format SLR camera on the market, and concluded that I wanted one that fitted my hands.

But Iam uses his vastly better than I do.

A beautiful coastline shot;
it looks just like a spot near me in Cornwall.
