Stuff I saw – Kinder scout / MJU II (2)

As I wrote in the previous post, I had another visit to kinder scout. We started up Grindsbrook knoll, wandered about on kinder scout taking photos, and came down jacob’s ladder.

Ascending grindsbrook knoll, we wanted to get the views and the hard part over and done with. Unfortunately, as we walked up, the clouds came in and we started walking in rain clouds. We couldn’t see very far in front of us, so I just took shots of Finn when we took a breather. Towards the afternoon the weather cleared enough for pinhole shots.

Here are a few HP5 snapshots, pushed one stop, and taken with my MJU II.

Stuff I saw – Kinderscout / MJU II

I recently found a mju II going for the right price on ebay (not much over £50, rather than silly three figure numbers). I wanted to take it hiking with it being tiny, disappointingly it suffers with light leaks out the wazoo. I will do another post on the camera if I can get it to work properly.

Edale village is tiny with two pubs and one post office, however it’s full of ramblers with the village being at the foot of Kinderscout plateau. It is also the start of the Pennine Way.

We went via Grindsbrook, a rocky ravine with fords, in the search for waterfalls so I could setup some pinhole images with the reality so subtle 6 x 17 -one can be seen here flickr.com/photos/dnh500/28758833540.

Grindsbrook, though not an easy walk or for that matter climb at the end, was nice. We got to eat dinner by a waterfall. We didn’t stay long at the top of the plateau but it offered some nice views for which I’ll be back for.

All the photos were shot with a Mju II / hp5 at 1600 (hacked dx code). Processed in HC110 dilution H.
