    That's fine Bob, being a Canadian is almost like being a Australian.

    Ah, as you might well note, I have quite enough trouble hauling ONE P67 about, much less the expected success lumbered with two. BUT it does have merit for car-based swaps. :-)

    PATIENCE, m'boy. We don't live in an instant era...
    I'm collecting a roll of Vaudeville Velvia from Melb. this morning, which will have on it, among a trove of delightful little nooks and crannies up Toorongo River Sanctuary way, a precious two frames from the Cape Woolly wander.
    The other roll is still being guarded by Pentaximus. I might finish it this weekend when I head down to Johanna Beach.

    So...where are yours?

    I have processed my film, but yet to make prints. Been busy with other stuff.

    Spent too much time trying to get a scan that works to post up here. For what ever reason I can not get b&w neg scans to work. Hence why I have a wet darkroom. Once I have a print I will have something to scan and post here for all to see.

    A pinhole is back a couple of pages, but here is one from similar position but on a 270mm. If you click on photo the colour Pigface shots are there as well, although not that impressive small.

    B&J 810 270mm on Shanghai 100 in Xtol.

    My first scene of a profusion of pigface and granite on the way to The Pinnacles.
    This scene has been cropped from a 6x7 tranny beacuse I could not see the value of the scattering of boulders in the lower frame.

    Velvia 50, 55mm f4 1/4 f11 SKY1B, TTL metered. Epson V700 scan

    And just to return briefly to Toorongo River..

    There is an unfinished roll of RVP in Pentaximus holding at least 7 images of Cape Woolly.

    The troubles/niggles I am having with myself about The Pinnacles at Woolamai is that all the scenes have been photographed many thousands of times before almost the same as we have, so the effect of WOW! is a bit tempered by familiarity. That said, Boots' typically atmospheric mono image (above) certainly gets the message across dramatically and with pizazz, but there is still an undercurrent of "seen it before" feeling. Even my own are likely to be passed over as I was just about in the same spot wasn't I. We'll see...

    Lachlan's much earlier suggestion post-trip to attempt to picture this area from the seaward side (if that is at all possible) where the rockpools are has merit as it would show The Pinnacles and general landscape in a new, unseen, unexplored perspective. That is what I think would lift the images we see from the pedestrian to the unique. None of the foregoing commentary is a criticism, by the way, but an observation of the need to attack this place in a new and totally different way.
