Fuji camera landscape photography on the Outer Hebrides
Fuji.... You may guessed that I am not gear orientated. But I do need the kit to do the job.

It was a perfect opportunity to try my 150-500mm lens and see how it worked. I was delighted that I had taken the time to head out to do some landscape work that afternoon as so often is the case. Making time and getting out there is what it is all about and you never quiet know when you are going to create an image that you truly love.
