Bejar Valley, Extremadura, with the M2

Early Leica M2 with button rewind was used to make this portrait of a Garlic seller in Bejar,Extremadura,in early Spring.
The light was brilliant at 11.00 am and not the best for photography but the surroundings reflected a lot of light to fill the shadows.Within a few miles we were in deep snow cuttings.Film was Delta 100 in Perceptol 1:3 and the lens was one of the first Summicron f2.0 rigid types from the early 1960's which is in my opinion the sharpest lens I own but has been cleaned and adjusted once in its life.
