The gate to a horse corral found at Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site in Elverson, Berks County Pennsylvania. I've been waiting for a flat lighting day to re-shoot Hopewell for quite a while so I didn't have to deal with hard shadows. Sunday provided lighting so flat and overcast that I had to drive to the location with my car lights on. I find that old wood and metal detail comes out looking great in these overcast conditions and shooting with Ilford HP5+ at the full 400 ISO and processing it in Ilford DD-X to maintain the sharpness and minimize grain at 400 ISO worked out very well for the shots I had envisioned.
