Rocky Fork Metro Park

Yesterday Andi and I visited Rocky Fork Metro Park for the first time. We went with a group of people from the Columbus Creative Photographers Meetup Group. The weather cooperated by being mostly overcast with some structure in the clouds. The clouds didn't seem to be moving very quickly, so I didn't bring along a tripod to try to do long exposures. I did bring along both my Fuji X-T1 and my Nikon FM3A. For the Fuji I had my 50-140mm f/2.8 and 16mm f/1.4 lenses and used the former for almost all my photos. The Nikon had the 50mm f/1.8 lens on it, and that was all I used, although I did have a 28mm f/2.8 in my bag.

I wanted to make some photos that I could submit to the Metro Parks administration for potential use in their newsletters, brochures, etc., so I set up the X-T1 to shoot both raw and black and white JPEG photos. The photos shown here are all from the black and white JPEG set. I only shot about 2/3 of a roll of Ilford HP5+ film, so that is still in the camera waiting for the next adventure.
