It’s great to have more light in the evening again and at moments like these I’m so happy that neture’s a mere 5 minute walk away from home. The first for hopefully many more evening walks after work!
A few more photos after the break
It was visible only shortly, but there was a huge rainbow over Assen today…
I was cycling into the center of Assen and saw these clouds and they got to me. I don’t know why, but every time I see clouds like these, I am reminded of art. The old Dutch landscapes to be precise. There’s something like pure art in clouds…
A view from the office…
‘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.
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 :)
Finally I made some time to start a bit of proper testing of the new Fujifilm 18-135 lens, as the vacation is gettin closer and closer… Here a shot of the tower of the Nieuwe Kerk church in Groningen:
A few days old, but I haven’t had time to proces it yet: a view of clouds from my office window:
This was most likely the last time this year I’d be able to go out on such a long ride after work: 84km in nearly 3 hours. However once the sun is gone the cold gets serious and with sweaty clothing that’s not much fun. Also I was racing against the sunset today. I learned my lesson last year and have a good set of lights with me, cycling in daytime is far far better.
It might seem a bit like an addiction, or that I’m a bit nuts… both are probably right. But hey… as long as we have good weather and there’s some light to go out cycling after work… why not? So after yesterday’s 120km ride, I took it a bit easy tonight and stayed just onder 60km. The views were gorgeous again.
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.
