    Hi guys,

    New member to this forum (though a member of several others for many years) living up in the North West Highlands of Scotland.

    Been using film for the past 40 years and large format for about 15......never really gelled with digital probably because i spend the whole working day in front of computers.

    The darkroom is nearly finished (taken 2 years so far) so can't wait to start digging into my archives.

    Regards,
    Mike

    Whereabouts in Scotland do you live?
    I love the North West Highlands!

    Shouldn't that be "dark slide" ? :)

    I'm up near Ullapool on the Gairloch road. Weather here just now is unbelievable!

    You may be forgetting the miserable experience of being 'soaked through' by the smir... but at least it does not 'itch' quite so bad afterwards.

    If it weren't for the midges and mist, you wouldn't be able to move for tourists :)

    It's only May and the roads are already filling up !!
