This is Boomer Bay, on one side of the small isthmus which connects the Forrestier Peninsula to the Tasmanian mainland, although there is a canal through it which was built a little over one hundred years ago.
Boomer Bay opens out through the Marion Narrows into Marion Bay, one of the jewels in the crown that is south east Tasmania…
This photograph was taken from the town of Dunalley, which straddles the isthmus and is located approximately halfway between the State Capital, Hobart, and the well known tourist atraction of Port Arthur.
The viewpoint is looking eastwards, with the entrance to the canal being just out of shot to the right, along with the town jetty and slipway.
A couple of seagulls flew through the shot while I was composing it, and it made such a difference that I waited for five minutes until another one flew through before I tripped the shutter…
Taken on the 23rd of May 2010 between 3pm and 4pm, using a Rolleicord V TLR camera which is 6×6 format using 120 film, and it was loaded with Fuji Pro 400H colour negative film which was processed (and very nicely too!) by Photoforce in Hobart.
The aperture was f/11 but I can’t recall the shutter speed.
Metering was done with a vintage Sekonic handheld selenium meter in keeping with the theme of the 1955 camera!
Digitised on an Epson V700 flatbed film scanner.
Levels adjusted to match the original print and some dust spotting was carried out. I used GIMP for this.
