Looks like you and the Irix can perform there Gareth...? How easy was the manual focus to cope with all day ..? Did you use any filters at all..?

The vertical orientation works brilliantly, with powerful foreground right at the bottom and perfectly placed horizon, all making a classic composition!

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

An 'absolute belter' is a good description of it !
