52:320TXP - Week 34 - Mount Carmel

Located well above the tourist trap that is Clifton Hill by Niagara Falls sits a lovely spiritual retreat, named after a rather well known mountain that is in Israel and features prominently in the story of the prophet Elijah, namely the contest he challenges the prophets of Ba’al to in the Book of Kings. I came across the retreat while looking for a spot to park my car as I was planning on a bit of light trespassing at a historic transformer station located just down the road. Also this was the very first sheet of film I shot with my new-to-me Pacemaker Crown Graphic, I know, taking a risk, but the camera’s in mint condition and the lens checked out on all shutter speeds. However I left all my lightmeters at home (stoops!) and ended up having to use an application on my iPhone, which decided to meter on the trees rather than the building itself. But despite that I still kinda like it!
