SIGNIFICANT MOMENTS #7
Newborough, Anglesey UK…
And so we reach the end of this series of images.
In May last year I became the proud owner of one of Fujifilm’s X10 compacts mainly for street photography but also because its retro look was rather cool. What I didn’t realise at the time that my little black number would become a constant companion. I never expected it to turn out such high quality landscape images.
If I go out for a day now I don’t have to lug a case full of equipment with me because, as you can see here, the X10 is perfectly happy to produce landscapes. All I have to do is think a little more about the image I want to capture.
I rarely use the preview screen always preferring the optical viewfinder. This means that I have to think about parallax error and work with only 80% of what the lens is seeing. There are a few more misses but that’s the way it goes. I love using the X10 and in return it gives me some fine images. In its own way, the X10 still gives me the Zen moments that my D700 does.
Thank you to everyone for tolerating this slightly self-indulgent wander through my landscape history; for all your comments and for all those the little hearts I also thank you.
