Summer is finally here! Some landscape photographers are not keen in photographing summer landscapes, but i do. Summer brings memories of fun, vacation, enjoyment, relaxation and companionship. Growing up, summer time was a time of exploration for me, living in the small town of Neos Skopos, Serres, Greece. I recall walking outside after 11 pm, going to the outskirts of my town, where it was dark enough to see millions of stars, and of course, the Milky Way! In a personal level, memories like this make night photography so rewarding.
Last Monday, on June 17th, 2019, my Fuji X-T1 camera (along with some other items, shopping my wife and I did shortly before) was stolen after someone breaking into our car. I feel fortunate enough to be able to order a replacement, the Fuji X-E1. Although it is an older model, it was something i can afford, for $169 at mpb.com. I was lucky to not have any of my favorite lenses stolen. The lens that was attached on my camera was my 7artisans 25mm f1.8, which was the cheapest lens in my collection.
I took the X-E1 out on a quick test, to my favorite spot out in Winona, AZ, overlooking train tracks with the San Francisco Peaks in the background. After processing the image I was very pleased with the results! You can see that image here
I hope you have a great month! I am looking forward in adding another post soon! Until next time, cheers!
