Well I have been away for a couple of weeks, well six weeks in all broken into two trips. During this time I have acquired another camera, a Sony a7r with a Carl Zeiss FE 24-70 f4 lens. It has been great to be out walking with just this camera and lens instead of the full gear bag for a change. It is always difficult (for me at least) getting to grips with all the different functionality and menu system when I use a new camera. I’m just starting to feel comfortable using it and couldn’t believe how heavy my other “day out” one body one lens combo of a Nikon D300 with battery grip attached and a Nikon 18-300 lens was in comparison!
I took this shot of the River Skell as it passes through the Fountains Abbey estate near Ripon in North Yorkshire.
