So we have a few days here on this lovely Island. I am particularly excited because I have heard that the mountains are snow covered which hasn’t happened here for a very long time. If you don’t know, this Island is just off the Coast of Saharan Africa so snow isn’t s common thing. So it’s off to get a hire car and go shoot some history.
I have travelled light with only one camera and 3 lenses. No tripod so the OIS will need to be on its game. I have with me; Fujifilm XT-2, 10-24mm f4, 18-55 f2.8-4, XC 50-230 (I cant afford a better tele)
For now though I will share my favourite snaps each day until I get up to the centre of the Island (Highlands).
Well it seems my intel was a little off, OK a lot off. We drove to the mountain range but unfortunately it was 17 degrees C and very dry. To add to my woes the hire car parking brake failed which is scary when you are driving through narrow mountain roads with 100ft steep drops off the road side. So I very carefully drove the car back to the hotel with more than one or two scary moments.
So I grabbed just a few hand held snaps whilst Rebecca kept her foot on the foot brake. So in all a failed day but let’s put it all down to experience.
The things I put my family through
