    Happy Easter (snow & rain)

    Although we switched in Europe now also to DST last night it was snowing this morning, on Easter Sunday! After brunch it was still snowing and I went to the Greifensee to capture hopefully the last snow pictures of this extended winter.

    Gryphus 8" camera, FL 150 mm, PH 0.40 mm (, Fomaspeed S312 photo paper, pre-flashed, 12 ASA

    A yacht port close to the village Fńllanden. 10 minutes exposure time (it was still snowing)

    Happy Easter to everybody, hopefully with a little bit better weather than we have currently in Switzerland.

    Soon after I arrived at the Greifensee it started to rain instead of snowing. Nevertheless I took a few other pictures before I went home.

    Fuji Cherry Blossom camera with new rise/fall front part (, FL 119 mm, PH 0.40 mm, Fomaspeed S311 (glossy) photo paper, pre-flashed, rated at 12 ASA, developed in Centrabrom

    The same place where I took the first picture, now half an hour later the rain dissolved the snow almost completely.

    Happy Easter to you RenÚ.

    I like the second one with the rowboat.. the smoothness and the subtle horizon beyond the float are really quiet and nice. In the first one I like the contrast ( for lack of a better word! ) between the contrast in the foreground and the contrast in the distance.

    ( pinholes and solargraphs mixed in among the rest)

    Nice work Happy Easter to you. Number three if I had to pick one. The bit of movement in number two is very nice too.

    Happy Easter, RenÚ.

    A very nice series, but # 3 really stands out as extra special.

    (I, too, keep waiting for the snow to make a final exit.)

    You are a master! Great work Rene, I especially like the second and third shots.

    Many thanks for your very kind comments.

    #2 and #3 are also my favorites. The smooth gray shades without any visible grain of the paper negatives are unbeatable.

    BTW: The snow is now definitely gone. We had some sunshine today but it was still very cold.
