Dwarf myrtle forest in the Great Western Tiers on Ilford Delta 100 by Jade Austen

Journal Entry

…Syds Track. Searching for my final image before heading back down. Here amongst the dwarf myrtles the moss is verdant and bright green. The sky is overcast, light showers come and go. I would focus on the plethora of greens were I shooting a colour film such as Portra 160 (that would do nicely today), but I have Ilford Delta 100 loaded in my Hasselblad, so I’m looking for shape, texture and contrast.

What I really need is a nicely isolated lichen-encrusted myrtle, old and twisted, with a dash of side light.
