These images were shot with the Pentax 645N, with the 75mm 1:2.8 Lens attached. The camera was loaded with Kodak Portra 800 film. Portra 800 is a beautiful film that creates images that do not need much editing once scanned to a computer.
I did another post a couple of weeks ago with my Mamiya 4B Rangefinder in the same general area(https://stevenlawrencepictures.com/2023/04/14/olympic-peninsula-fomapan-100200-diafine-42/).
The images were captured near the City of Quinault, Washington, in the Capitol National Forest. An area that receives, on average, 122 inches (3100 mm) a year.

Without a trail, one could never penetrate these magic areas. This tree in the foreground is a Western Hemlock. If the forest is left to itself, it will displace and dominate the area it is native to.

The Epson V850 flatbed scanner scanned the images using the proprietary software.
