Robin Hood's Roofscape

By DLLP    
Another one from the archives....
I took this sometime in the early 80ís during a walk of the entire Yorkshire coast (Mouth of the Tees to Spurn Point). A couple of years later I walked the Northumberland coast, which was also a good experience.

I think the location I took this shot from may now have been washed into the sea; I tried to find it again a couple of years ago to try and replicate this shot but couldnít. There is a new path and steps which are very steep, and the adjoining ground was very overgrown with thick bushes.

(Many thanks to those who voted or commented on yesterday's upload)

Edit: Quick mono conversion added later.

Yes, the full size scan has a lot of detail for a 100 ASA film scan; and probably evidence of the fact that my hands were a lot steadier in those days. I certainly didn't have a tripod with me on that trip.

Yup. Your processing technique has given a lovely textured, grainy finish which really suits the subject.

Not many had television in those days judging by the lack of aerials.

Thanks Gary. I've just added a mono version. Just a straight conversion from the colour version as uploaded so could probably be improved.
I've just remembered that I had another body with me on that walk with mono film and may even have a true mono version I'll have to have a look.

It's good to look back at some of the old 35mm stuff sometimes!
