Portballintrae

Storm ‘Barbara’ is on the way, a large area of low pressure has been building a big swell out in the Atlantic for the last lot of days, and the waves are incredible. This is Portballintrae, N. Ireland, 21/12/2016 (Winter solstice)

Fuji x100

Covered an assignment for the paper today using a wee fuji x100 I’d borrowed for a couple of days. Not sure what to make of it really. It produces a fantastic file, and makes you work for a picture which is a good thing.  I’d guess the more up to date versions of the camera would be easier to work with, a little faster in operation etc, but overall, a joy to work with.

Been toying with the idea of switching over, at least in part, to a smaller system, and certainly todays job has helped convince me.

Went a bit ‘JJ’ with the lens flares here. Its due to a filter on front of the lens, rather than any problem with the camera.
