Last week I was working away, up in Morecambe in the UK. Knowing I was going to be very busy with the meetings I was attending, I decided not to take all my camera gear and instead took my Fuji X70 and a few spare batteries.
I was staying at The Midland Hotel, a gorgeous Art Deco building on the sea front, overlooking Morecambe Bay. As it turned out, I managed to grab some free time each day to take a walk along the sea front and grab some shots. The weather was very British, that is to say, it was changing every five minutes (some might call it bracing), but the light was beautiful. Sometimes strong, sometime subtle.
I did see both a sunrise and sunset, but didn't have the right gear with me to capture it. I met another photographer, tripod at the ready, to capture the sunset, and he told me that Morecambe Bay has the best sunsets he has ever seen in the UK. We chatted for a few minutes, but I am not one to keep a fellow tog from their shots, so we parted company in search of photogenic scenes.
I really needed a tripod for the shot above, but took a flyer on a high ISO Shot, in this case ISO2500. The low light performance of the X70 is amazing.
Given I wasn't planning on anything special in terms of photography I am pretty pleased with what I captured and will definitely be going back for a dedicated photography trip.
