4x5 for 365 project (3/365)

The icy grip of Winter.  Ice clings to a tree branch.  I think I've had just about all the Winter I can take already. 

Camera: Calumet 45NX 4x5 large format monorail view camera. 

Lens: Fujinon-W 210mm F5.6 lens in a Copal B shutter.  

Film: Arista EDU 100 Ultra 100 ISO Negative sheet Film, shot at 64 ISO. 

Exposure: 1/15th second @ F22. 

Development: Self Developed film in Kodak Xtol 1+2 dilution in Paterson Universal Tank using the Taco Method. 13 minutes @ 20 degrees Celsius. Tap water stop bath. Ilford Rapid Fixer. Photo-Flo. Hung on shower curtain to dry on film clips. 

Scanning: Negative scanned with Epson V600 in two scans and merged back together in PhotoShop since the V600 doesn't natively support 4x5 scans in one pass.
