I’m sure that any readers currently residing in the UK will agree we have been having some rather odd weather of late. Today it was some 11 or 12 degrees (Celsius) in Manchester which is ridiculously warm for this time of year. Yet only last weekend we had sub-zero temperatures and snow.

But the snow is ideal for Landscape Photographer and last weekend I drove up to the Lake District. Trees and fields were covered with a beautiful blanket of snow. The weather was overcast but this was perfect for capturing minimalist scenes without lots of glare.

Whilst it was my intention to use the Sony A7r exclusively, I ended up turning to my pocket Canon G7X again. I intended to use the compact only for sizing up compositions before unpacking the larger camera. In the end I shot quite a lot of scenes with the Canon and it performed very well.

The image here makes a rather nice A3 print. It was also not the ideal location to be trying to set up the Sony on a tripod. The perfect scenario for the compact pocket camera.
