The Zone System is a photographic technique for determining optimal film exposure and development, formulated by Ansel Adams and Fred Archer in 1941. The Zone System provides photographers with a systematic method of precisely defining the relationship between the way they visualize the photographic subject and the final results. Although it originated with black and white sheet film, the Zone System is also applicable to roll film, both black and white and color, negative and reversal, and to digital photography.

This image was taken just before the last posted image below from Lough Cullan. This is Lough Conn with Nephin in the background. The light was wonderfull for black and white photography. The sun was high in the sky and nice contrast from highlight to shadow while using ND Grad filters to keep the sky from blowing out.

The first B&W image to be posted from Lough Cullan. This lake is in the road from Foxford to Pontoon (R318). There is a couple of places for you to stop and walk around. This was the last image taken as I ran out of memory card space. I backup the cards when they are full to a portable storage device (Jobo Giga One), but I still do not format the cards and use them again until back home and have backed up the again.
