I am settling back in from my trip up north. As I mentioned yesterday, I have a hard drive issue (It is full!) so I can’t upload my images from up north. I hope to solve that in the next day or so. Thankfully, I had scanned all my July film images prior to this. Today I bring you Ektar 100 in Utah.

I really liked the 1 roll I shot in June, so this month I wanted to shoot it again as I was headed to Utah for work. This was my first work trip that I carried film. I really wanted to see what the wide 21mm Voigtlander with Ektar could do out west. It did not disappoint. I really don’t have much to say about the Ektar. I like the rich and saturated colors. My only quibble is that it is a 100 speed film and my only lens is an f4 making it next to impossible to get anything very good in low light. But, I knew this going in and expected to be shooting it in full sun anyway. Hope you enjoy the pics.

More Circulus – I did the best I could with this 100 speed film in the low light.

Union Station – Ogden, Utah

Utah Mountains – This is what I had in mind when I planned on bringing film with me.

And my favorite shot of the bunch. I shot this looking out the back window of a pick up truck. We were headed up to Snowbasin for a day of riding, shooting and fun. Turned out to be a fantastic day.

Tomorrow’s Friday ride stoke features Ilford HP5.  Don’t miss it.

    Nice! I like the classic look of film. Don’t see it much anymore. And Snowbasin is one of the gems here in Utah. Great trails!

      Thanks for the comment Adam. It sure is a gem. Couldn’t believe I got to ride there 4 straight days and then finish the day with a lovely decent into Ogden. I could get used to that.
