  1. I enjoyed the music video too. So appropriate.

    Your photos show much skill and talent, but I’m curious about what camera you are using? (I’m in the market for a new camera)

    • Trust me, Beth, my photos are extremely variable – I delete almost all of them!

      Having said that, I use a Sony Nex-5, with a dedicated 18-200mm telephoto lens. Despite the considerable weight and bulk such a big lens adds to an essentially compact camera, I think it’s an excellent system. Buying that camera, then adding a decent telephoto lens, significantly changed my snaps.

      As for the music clip, it shows my age!

  2. The higher way requires great effort, but it looks well worth it.

    • The hand-rail proved a trustworthy help!
