We have enjoyed a settled spell of fine weather this week which had also been forecast to continue over the weekend. My phone, email and text messenger were busy communicating with friends all week planning a morning out on the Saturday to take advantage of this good spell. We planned to go to Buttermere in the Lake District but at the last minute we changed plan and decided on the Trossachs.
As always it's been a while since I've had the opportunity to get out taking photographs. Surprisingly though I had a free day today and after a such a long lay off I was excited to finally plan a morning out. I had also just received a new camera and I was itching to try it out. The forecast was promising so my plan was to head up the A82 to Glen Coe for sunrise. -- more --
I’ve always used Nikon equipment. My first camera was a totally manual Nikon FM2 film camera followed by a Nikon F100 before switching to to digital bodies. Over the years I’ve bought and sold dSLR’s and added new lenses when funds allowed. I loved my Nikon equipment but my camera backpack was getting far too heavy so I made the decision to switch to a more compact and lighter system as I was getting tired with all the weight. -- more --
