Leaf hunting second try

After my last leaf hunting trip I decided to give it one more chance and take a trip off island to see if I could get some better results.

At least I now know for sure that I really don’t like taking pictures of the autumn colours. Hiking through them, viewing them I love, but as the photos just don’t do them justice (well my photos don’t) it just seems like a waste of time.

Next year I’ll still continue to take photos but in reality I’d rather spend the time going on a longer hike.

I did encounter a nice udon shop which only serves 20 meals per day and I did find a few more things for my garden 🙂 so the trip was worth while.

New Camera DMC-FT4

After my DMC-FT3 died on a trip to the Tango Peninsula, Panasonic was kind enough to send me a new one, a newer model and in different color :).

The DMC-FT4 is basically the same as the previous model with a few new functions. The panoramic mode is interesting but nothing that can’t be achieved in post.

Do I need this ?

Amazing Autumn

It’s not just the colours, It’s the food, the food….

Sure the colours are amazing and the photography is simple, point, shoot and you have yourself a great shot, And then….. And then it gets boring.

Maybe I need to spend some time on flickr stealing some ideas 🙂
