Nice photo of the sunrise on 20th Februrary for today’s photo. One of those occasions when it was so lucky to have the camera ready AND be in the right place at the right time. I took a series of shots as the clouds and light changed, but the aim was to get the clouds to appear to come out of the electricity pylon and a frame around the best of the clouds. See what you think. As the light was changing so fast (and the clouds were also moving fast due to the strong winds aloft) then there was not time to set things up properly, but the results were fine. Hopefully the time-lapse of the moving clouds will be equally dramatic. So much fun with a camera !!!
and another photo out of the archives….night train from Trondheim, Norway to Oslo……This was one of my first night shots with the Fuji X-E1….

Thought for the day…”Dreams do not work unless you do” “Do not wish for it, work for it”.
One of the great bonuses of the Fuji X-E1 camera is that the photos straight out of the camera are so good, even in jpeg form. Previously I would spend many hours with RAW files, adjusting and ‘developing’ the RAW image into finished JPEG photo, but now things are so much easier (and quicker). The standard jpegs straight out of the camera are so good…..have a look at the 2 photos below. Great colours, great sharpness and great contrast. Not quite ‘point and shoot’ but certainly much faster and much easier than previous digital cameras. And having been so impressed by the quality of the glass in the Fuji lenses, then another lens purchase might just be on the horizon..but will I be able to bring myself to pay the 2000 euros for the new zoom lens?????? Quality costs.
