At the weekend I went for a walk around the Tintern area with a friend. We walked about eight miles, starting from Tintern Abbey and heading up to the Devil’s Pulpit which overlooks it. It’s quite a steep climb to the top! Much of the walk was in shady woodland and there weren’t many opportunities for photos. However the Devil’s Pulpit afforded an excellent view over the ruined abbey, the village and the Wye valley.

Elsewhere on the walk we were caught in rain so we sheltered in a barn for about half an hour. There was a rusty old tractor in there so I grabbed a couple of shots while waiting for the rain to pass.

These pictures were taken with a Canon AL-1 QF camera using Ilford FP4+ film. I carried a few lenses and I used the 135mm f/2.8 for the abbey, the 17mm f/4 for the tractor and the 50mm f/1.4 for the tractor detail.
