Kiev 4

These were taken with a camera from the Former Soviet Union, called the Zorki 4. This camera has the brightest rangefinder of all the Leica III copies I have handled and the Jupiter 8 lens is also one of the best. I was on my way to work and it was very foggy, but the sun had just topped the mountains and lit up the trees and grasses. The fog, and the opportunity were gone after about ten minutes. It doesn't hurt to be lucky.

I really like the colors and composition on these images.

For the past three days, I've kept coming back to that orange grass shot. I really like its surrealness.

Thank you both. The cool thing is that the colors are non-photoshopped. Just a lucky combination of correct lens, time of day, fog, and film. Pure luck, but I can live with that.
