Sani Pass Proteas

I spent a few hours over the weekend shooting proteas on the way up the Sani pass. This resilient and fire resistant bush/tree grows to around eight meters and actually requires fire as part of the germination process. There are some magnificent skeletal remains just crying out to be photographed. Captured on a 5x7 pinhole camera using paper negatives.

I have just finished my 8x10 pinhole camera and will be taking it for its maiden outing this morning. Constructed from Beech, it sports a focal length of 150mm and a 450micron pinhole.
