Tri-X in Rodinal

I shot a roll of Kodak Tri-X last fall and early winter in my new(to me) Minolta XD11 - I just developed it in Rodinal. This was my first time using Rodinal for Tri-X - it doesn't look all that different from my usual go to HC-110(b). I like using one-shot style developers because it is so easy. I've read that these two developers render the grain differently but I need to put them side by side on the light table to really notice. I think I captured a lot of the great winter light in these - one of the few things I like about winter in Ohio - magic hour lasts all day.

North Bend Rail Trail

North Bend Rail Trail
On Saturday I had a photo shoot along the Towpath at FT. Larauns near Bolivar for the Ohio & Erie Canalway - I decided to leave at 6 am and ride my bike there(50 miles). After the shoot I rode over to Dundee, OH to a HipCamp site Erin had found. Ben rode down and joined us after work - it was a beautiful spot. In the morning we headed to meet the gang in West Virginia to ride the North Bend Rail Trail. We had an absolute blast. I only carried my Canon with me on the first day because of the weather but at the end of this post I have GoPro footage from most of the trip.
