Reflection, Murdering Creek

Gelatin-silver photograph on Ilford MG IV VC RC photographic paper, image size 19.4cm X 24.6cm, from a Kodak Tmax 400 4x5 negative exposed in a Tachihara 45GF double extension field view camera fitted with a Schneider Super Angulon 90mm f8 lens and #25 red filter. Titled and signed recto, stamped verso.

Murdering Creek flows into the southern margin of Lake Weyba. It has long been thought that there was a massacre of Australian Aboriginal people here in the 1860's perpetrated by white settlers who claimed the land. Research into the matter reveals a circular reporting of a massacre by one historian quoting another. I cannot find a primary eye witness report. Maybe the story was spread to scare aborigines away. Maybe it was down to some cowboys bragging about imaginary exploits. Maybe bloody murder was committed here in this beautiful and tranquil spot many years ago.

NICE! Love the Tachihara's. Love the image too! Just curious what developer you are using on your TMax?
