The Beaches Through a Red Filter

Yes, I love the look of skies darkened by a red filter. To me it seems like a sense of stark drama is created, a hidden eeriness is revealed. These four images are from a recent trip down to The Beaches.

The Filtered View

Last Saturday morning I was back in the Beaches area, near the R.H. Harris plant. I have shot there many times before, but this was the first time I took my new Voigtlander Superwide 15mm lens, and also the first time I shot Eastman Double-X black and white film with a read filter. Really happy with the results in these images!
