After the Storm

(Camera: Olympus Stylus Epic DLX; Film: Kodak Ektar 100)

We don’t get a great deal of snow here in Victoria, so when we do, it’s quite an event. And perhaps because it’s so rare, it seems especially beautiful. I took this picture after waiting out a sudden squall in the shelter of a big, Douglas fir tree. In a matter of minutes, it was all over and the sky turned a brilliant blue. On the right edge of the photo, you can see the storm retreating across the Juan de Fuca Strait. It was exciting while it lasted.

    Yes, the Ektar is rapidly becoming my print film of choice. It scans nicely and seems to be superb for daylight shots. I normally prefer slide film for colour, but the Ektar has me rethinking this preference.

    Ektar has become my favorite print film too! I also keep an Olympus Stylus Epic in my truck. It’s my favorite camera to just stick in my coat pocket and take everywhere! Too bad they stopped making it!
