Testing in the mountains

I took a much needed escape from the city and headed into the mountains last week. The French Alps followed by a brief stop in Switzerland. I was testing a couple of things. One being my Splitboard, another seeing if my little Polaroid SX-70 camera can function in the mountains.

The Splitboard was a success. Unfortunately the Polaroids not so. I seem to have found the temperature limits for developing Impossible Project PX70 colour film. Up the mountains it was around -20°C not taking into account wind chill. The films (despite my best efforts) didn't develop properly. Each image being undeveloped with a strong blue cast . I'm sure a return in the warmer March weather will render better results. I did of course still have the trusty iPhone to take a few snaps.
