Rocking the Zorki

Rocking the Zorki

With half a roll of film left after ICCD, I took the Zorki-3/Jupiter-8 combo up into the mountains on the way to Covington, VA. I always like getting shots of the rock strata where the roads have been cut into the cliffs. This particular road runs alongside Roaring Run, a creek that stands up to its name with all the waterfalls along the way making noise like a jet airliner on final. Add the wind blowing through the trees, and it can be quite the cacophony.

After a second round of work on the Zorki, I only had one light strike, and in the same place as most of the others. Hard to figure this one out, but with that J-8 lens, and Fuji Acros 100, if it only does it once in 36, then Iím okay with that.

Common view along a lot of the back roads around here.

From another angle, the rock formations look completely different. That Jupiter-8 is sure earning its keep here.

That white patch in the middle background is a waterfall on Roaring Run about 50-60 feet below where Iím standing, and trying not to slide down the embankment. The b&w just doesnít do the scene justice, but I do like the dappled light.

The Rich Patch mountains got their moniker from all the iron ore veins within the various layers of rock. It made for a good living for some small operations until the large high grade deposits were discovered out west. This was also one of the areas heavily mined during the Southern Rebellion, and at the lower end of Roaring Run is a forge for converting the ore to iron that is maintained as a tourist site by the National Parks Service. There is also a trail that leads about halfway up the run to some of the more scenic falls.

Thanks, Ko. I'm going to next try the lens on the Zorki-6 to test out a theory of mine on that stray light.
