Back From Yet Another Break

Life is getting back to normal here after the last could of years. I know this because I’ve found my time is continuously squeezed by needing to break off for various holidays and trips that backed up over the past 2 years. Now that I can finally take a holiday, I don’t feel that I need to. One holiday or break every 6 months is probably enough for me. Trying to cram too many into a short space of time feels counterproductive.

If you’re wondering why I’m talking about holidays, it’s because I’m just back from another break, this time to Cornwall. It was a great holiday. The weather was great, and I even managed to get a bit of sunstroke. But I didn’t really need it.

I did though find a little time to do some photography so thought I would share this shot.

Nanjizal Beach, Cornwall. Panasonic G9 with Leica 12-60 lens at 17mm.

This is a hidden cove at Nanjizal Beach. It’s a lovely place and only a 40-minute walk from the theme park that is Lands End. Unfortunately (or fortunately) most visitors to Lands End don’t make it this far along the coast path.

I took the shot using a Panasonic G9 camera with Leica 12-60 lens. It’s a handheld exposure of 1/500” at f/8.0 and ISO200. Even after opening the shadows, I’m extremely pleased with the image quality. It’s made me realise that the G9 is probably a more flexible camera than I’ve given it credit for in the past. I certainly find it enjoyable to use because of the slightly smaller size (when you include the lens) than my Fuji. It’s also lighter, especially when if you consider accessories like filters, although I didn’t use any for this shot.

I’ll be trying to get out with this camera more frequently, although I do have more postponed trips coming up that I need to take. Arghhh!

I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.
