New Day on THE Bay

There is a special kind of magic in that first sunrise of a new year. In 2019, we were not so fortunate, for the first time in a while. This just goes to show how spoiled we are, living on these magical shores.

January 1st, 2018 was a more typical first morning. Light cloud cover a setting for a colourful light show. Gradual colour change, light reflected of the dawn skies giving a soft glow to ice covered rocks. It all conspires for that magical experience – a colourful start and hopeful promise for another new year.

More I try different colour film or digital options, more I come back to 120 format Kodak Ektar Professional 100. This film just has the right balance of colours and soulful tones that makes it special. When carefully underexposed (hi-lights in zone VII), Ektar is unrivalled for the look. At least that’s what I think about it :).
