Vefsna 1975

This is the river Vefsna in Nordland, in the northern part of Norway. I shot it right after buying my first SLR, a Mamyia 1000DTL with a 50mm/2.0 lens (the only one I had at first). The film was Kodak Tri-X. Scanned from the negative.


This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at The Monochrome Weekly

I love the look of this shot.

Wiw, beautiful picture and scenery

ElinSire said...

Så utrolig morsomt at du viser et bilde fra ditt første speilrefleks (fra den gangen da jeg fortsatt bare var et frø ;D).
Veldig fin stemning i bildet og flott komposisjon.

Wonderful Rune, is that DW in the photo?.

Anne said...

Nå så arti!! Uansett, det er noe helt spesiellt med gamle bilder :-)
Helt kjempe.

Min sort hvite benk ligger nå der, men har nok lite tid til å sitte i dag, jul snart vettu.

Klem til deg Rune!!

Hi Rune! Lovely shot!! But more interesting is that you know all the details of a 1975 photo; I don't even remember if I had a camera in 1975... ;))

There is a weird bridge waiting for you at Blogtrotter. Enjoy and have a great weekend!!

The trees of hoarfrost seem ghostlike figures of the human kind. Mysterious vibe.

AL said...

Fair good shot for your first camera. What was the boy waiting for?

webruci said...

Beautiful landscape! You have your gift in that time, the picture is atunning.

Sylvia said...

Fascinating. I love that stream, and the forest. Inspiring picture. I mean, the whole world should be as peaceful.

Hi Rune,
Thank you for taking the time to comment on my posts, I appreciate it!
I like this shot, those 50mm 2.x lenses were pretty versatile. I still have a Fujica camera with a 50mm 2.2 lens that I used constantly for a long time. I just don't use my film cameras anymore...

When i enlarged this image it showed it on a white back ground....
Looked even more impressive.

Elisabeth said...

Very nice archival image and you did a great job scanning the negative. Thank you so much for sharing.

Vita Stunder said...

FÖR en känsla utan dess like i den här bilden Rune!
Fortsätt att raida i ditt filmarkiv - jag ser fram emot att se fler bilder :)

Och tusen tack för dina ord om min bild!

Ha en fin lördagskväll
Anna

En vacker plats och en vacker bild. En plats där man kan finna ro och vila.

Grace and Bradley said...

Nice shot, your are talented already in 1975.

awarewriter said...

Nice, very nice. It's so much fun to dig into the archives. The 50mm lens is my favorite. I have 4 of them. Tri-X is a great film too. I used it way back in the 1960s and 1970s and have three fresh rolls ready to shoot.

I dug out a series of Tri-X photos for yesterday's post -- from 1971.

Pernille said...

Dæsken, e d mamma som sitter der? Hihihi. Nei det er det ikke, men jeg måtte bare si det jeg tenkte da jeg så bildet;)

Et nydelig bilde fra for meg kjent strøk. Kan du ikke komme oppover å ta et nytt? For da kan jeg joine deg;)

Ha ei kjempegod helg der vest:))

wow, a piece of history, then!

ChrisJ said...

Brrr! That looks cold. I can almost smell the pine trees and damp earth.

Sistertex said...

Such a beautiful place. Could it be spring? The river looks quite full and rushing.

ArneA said...

Jeg er ikke sååå veldig interessert i svart hvitt, men må påpeke at dette bildet ble flott etter min mening pga figuren i bildet. Slikt skaper liv for meg.
er forresten EOS 7D noe for meg til jul

Sagatun said...

Flott bilde liker at det ser så naturlig ut.
Fortsatt god helg

Bengbeng said...

pics like this are the reason i love monochrome maniacs. there is so much to learn from photographers like you. i have been involved in photography for 16 months and to me it seems such a slow but rewarding process. i enjoy myself ( sounds crazy huh? :)

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Allerede i 75 hadde du fotoøye med deg, gøy å få se eldre bilder Rune!

Quasi Serendipita said...

Beautiful image. I like all the different "colours" in the water.

Carver said...

That's a beautiful shot. I'd like to be standing on that water bank.

Irene said...

Artig å se gamle bilder fra arkivet. Jeg fikk mitt første speilrefleks 5 år etter, men tok aldri sort/hvitt. Har et "tonn" med slides som burde ha blitt scannet. Men det er en annen story :o

Paula said...

Really cool, I love the history behind the photo as well as the amazing scenery.

Anne-Berit said...

Så flott dette var,visste ikke at det gikk an å skanne fra negativer.

Phoenix C. said...

What a beautiful atmospheric photo! I love the way the mysterious trees come down to the water's edge in the distance.

Ann said...

Thanks for tip on reflection photos. I will go and try it out.

On Sat,(before I read you tip) I went to a creek, and parts of it the water was flowing fast, parts of it was still. I got a lesson my the husband , a water engineer why.

I will go to another place and do my "practicals."

Isn't it great that we now have digitals and we can take 101 photos. I remember when I was 15, films came in 24 and 36.

lynnwiles said...

A serene view and 1975 was a few years after I bought my first SLR. I think that's the year I set up my darkroom. Miss the smell of those chemicals.

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

Your mention of Kodak, Tri-x film brought back a lot of memories. I remember when it first arrived in the PX in Japan. I got some. LOL

It made a nice shot.

NatureFootstep said...

an old TRI X, nice :)

mrsnesbitt said...

As ever, your photograph is just exquisite!

Gallow said...

Great photo, and I be great memories. Every picture contains a story.

Is that you in the photo?

Alberto Oliver said...

I dont know what do you think, but an old photo, taken in the old times with old techniques have an special charming, and moreover if it happens to be one of your first pictures. Besides, Norway is always an outstanding pretext for taking a picture. =)

squirrel said...

Very beautiful. I love the pines. Didn't realize you could scan from a negative. I will have to look into that. Thanks for the idea.

Wenche said...

Eit artig bilde! Kjekt med "gamle" bilder. Flott komposisjon og stemning på bildet. klar for villmarksliv:-)
