Mudstone flake, Pohangina river

This is a photograph of a black-and-white print of a photograph from the late '90s. I remember little about the technical details, other than the film was Ilford Delta 100, the camera a battered Nikon F3 and the lens might have been the legendary Tamron 90 mm macro. None of that matters, of course, at least in part because this is a photo of the print. I don't know how long the flake survived, but it had gone by the time I returned a few months later.

This is about ten minutes upstream from the Piripiri bridge over the Pohangina, not officially within the Ruahine Forest Park, but close enough to begin sensing the change.

Living geology.

For an image of a picture of a picture, this is amazing.

Thank you, Zhoen.

I've tried photographing other places like this and somehow they never quite seem to work. So far, at least.
