ilford hp5+. mclane creek nature trail. diafine developer.

Another cloudy day with light showers. I am taking out my Nikon F4, loaded with Ilford HP5+ black and white film, intending to develop the roll in Diafine.

I am pushing the film 1 stop to 800 ISO. The McLane Creek area offers several trails, most under 2 miles round trip. This roll of film will be the 12th film I have developed in the same solution.

Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii)

Douglas Fir Cones (the size varies from 2-4 inches).

Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata).

I shot a roll of Fomapan 400 at box speed yesterday on a walk around the Olympia area. The film is not recommended for use with Diafine. I am looking forward to developing the film this morning.

  1. When you thumb/index finger drag them larger the detail is still brilliant. Grain is minimal too. Using the developer that many times doesn’t seem to alter the quality. Your trials are a great informer. Cheers.
