At Mornos lake

For today’s post, a few images shot at Mornos lake (Greece), a beautiful location for landscape photography. All images taken with the Fuji GSW690iii and Kodak Portra 160VC.

I also made some images with the Leica M6 and Mamiya 645 on the same trip, but the 6×9 negative (especially when printed) is on its own level.

The Fuji GSW690iii is actually a box with a lens, one of the best lenses ever made for landscape photography. The Fujinon 65mm f/5.6 acts like a 28mm (35mm equivalent) and its razor sharp with superb image quality. No batteries needed for this camera, its fully mechanical and it doesn’t even have a meter, so I will always bring my Sekonic meter with me. Being a rangefinder means that its size is quite small for a 6×9 camera. It’s often called the “Texas Leica” since it seems a Leica on steroids.

It’s a camera as simple as it gets and my favorite one for landscapes. About the Portra 160VC I have written many times, a great film that unfortunately has been discontinued.

Enjoy the rest of the images.
