Since completing the final project of my Masters degree (a complete book including all text and images) I have been relieved to not have to pick up a camera wherever I go! I have had a short break from photography, compared to my normal MO of permanently having it in my hand, and it has been a pleasant relief. Now, I miss the buzz of capturing images and editing, so I’m back with images in mind and camera in hand.
I am looking to downsize and go mirrorless in time, as carrying a lot of equipment can become a burden – quite literally – and tiring. When the aim is purely landscape photography, a smaller, lighter, high-quality camera is ideal, so I may buy a Fuji XT-2 or something similar in the near future. In the meantime, I’m just taking my Canon body and a single wide angle lens out with me, and seeing what that gets me. So far, it’s been ok.
We took another hike up Kinder Scout today, this time to look for fungi species, and I came back with a few quickly shot images of the breathtaking landscape of the Dark Peaks.
