Rolling against the light by peterdegraaff

Rolling against the light

...Belmore Basin, Wollongong.

Last evening cyclonic weather set in, with torrential rain, gale force winds and wild seas up and down the coast. I was in Wollongong this morning so took the opportunity to use my Olympus AF-1 "wet flash" to capture the storm, and then home to dry off and develop this roll. Tonight we are off to see Lincoln (and enjoy a choc top)!

Taken with Olympus AF-1 on Kodak BW400CN and then stand developed as an experiment in Adonal (1:100) for 60 minutes.
