Ship in the Fog

6722 scanA ship steaming upriver in a fog in the Sabine Pass in Texas. Sabine Pass is the outlet for Sabine Lake, located at the Gulf along the border between Texas and Louisiana. This is a very busy port, particularly for liquefied natural gas. The photo was taken in December of 2014 with a Nikon FTn Photomic 35 mm SLR equipped with a 50 mm f/1.4 Nikkor-S.C. Auto lens on Ilford FP4+ film. The negative was enlarged optically with a Beseler 23CIIXL enlarger and a 50 mm f/2.8 Schneider Componon-S lens on Ilford Multigrade Classic FB Double Weight Fiber Base silver gelatin photo paper. Processing was done archivally using Kodak chemistry, with a final toning with Kodak Rapid Selenium Toner, treated with hypo clearing agent, and washed in an archival washer.
