I've been there before. The expectation of a glorious season is around the corner and then follows weeks of rain, flat conditions, endless grey cloud and a limitless lack of atmosphere. The key is to be prepared to travel, follow the conditions when necessary but above all, be out there early in the season if it presents the opportunity.
July turned out to be a month with some new gear. I invested in a Fuji X-E2 and 18-55mm f/2.8-f/4 because I wanted something lighter for what I call 'occasional' shooting. It certainly has its strengths and weaknesses like any other camera and I'll put together a separate blog post on this soon enough.
After the photographically challenging period through February where I seemed to really struggle to find something I liked for weeks, March turned into an immense month photography wise. There is no doubt that come the end of the year I would probably be able to pick half of my favourite images from the sessions I had in this month - and sometimes you only need a few hours to fill a card with a whole set of images which have impact or poise, the right drama or subtlety.
