Here we go. It’s excuse time. Or, if you prefer, “valid reason time”.
The photos I took on the hike aren’t as good as I would like them to be. There are several reasons for this.
Me: I’m not a great ‘togger.
The new camera: Yes, it’s fancier than the old one, but I’m still getting used to it.
The light: Blindingly bright, start to finish.
The timing: This wasn’t a photography session, it was a hike. People weren’t there for me to take photos, they were there to walk up the mountain. There was (understandably) no time to stop and compose.
The brief: That said, I did have to try and get some usable photos of the pack walking up the mountain.
The brief (pt 2): I also needed to get some point-and-shoot shots to show Mrs 6000 where we were and where we went.
Those will do for the moment, right?
All said and done, there are a few shots I like (and a few more that I might add later), and that’s without including the ones documenting the climb for the Cub pack.
I really enjoyed the hike, but there will be better days to go out and take photos. And one those days, the photos will naturally also be better.
