The southwest coast path in Cornwall is quietest during winter and a great place to see the Atlantic gales and storms. I wanted to make a comparison of the difference between images taken on a digital camera versus a film camera using chromogenic film during storms on the north Atlantic coast.
The light and weather were challenging most days, having to manually change apertures and shutter speeds according to the light meter, which was every few minutes. Both cameras were on a tripod and shutter speeds below 1/60 sec shutter. Every day for a week, the storms didn't go below gale force 7, making it even more of a challenge.
The image above was taken on the first day looking southwest at Bedruthan steps at midday. The temperature was 7ºC during an active and quickly moving westerly cold front. The surf was 18-28ft at high tide.
I will publish a comparison image once I have the E6 processed, but for now the film is sitting in the fridge at 5ºC. Unlike the immediacy of digital I just have to wait and find out the difference in the colour of light recorded on these different mediums during winter on the North Atlantic coast.
