If you live in Assen you’re going to have to try really hard to miss the Dutch TT. After a week of TT Funfair and nearly a week of the annual TT Festival today finally the 87th Dutch TT was on with the Moto3, Moto2 and the main event: the MotoGP!
‘Cause every time it rains,
You’re here in my head,
Like the sun coming out–
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen.
And I don’t know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.
It’s full on winter in the Netherlands and we have had a few days of frost now. And yes: I do know that there are a lot of places in the world where will be far, far colder, but at a mere -6 degrees for a few days the Netherlands turn into a fairytale like scene with beautiful white trees…
I also hadn’t yet tried a panorama at some distance with the Fujinon 18-135n lens and wanted to try that too, just to have a bit of an idea what I’m going to be working with :) All in all quite happy with the result…
I wanted to test the ND filters, just got a new Hoya 10-stop filter and decided to immediately go for a hard test: double stacking. Added the 10 stop and 3 stop filters together and went from there…
In 30 seconds there is a lot of movement, most is unseen, however if people are on the same spot long enough, you get a glimpse of them.
As I was near the Pannenkoekenschip, a restaurant serving pancakes, I did a shot there too
Testing some settings on the X-Pro2 and with the newer (better) firmware that ought to improve the autofocus of the X-Pro2. I’m starting to get used to the trumpet-size of the lens :)
I got a new lens in today: the Fujifilm Fujinon 18-135mm. Haven’t had time to do a lot of testing yet, but I managed a few shots. Will do a fuller ‘article’ on the lens and the reasons for buying it in a while. Here’s two shots to see that at least it works.
