There were no posts last week, while we were away. This week I’m finding it hard to get into the rhythm again. The photos I took last week will take some time to go through and edit, even if they’re not that many. I like to leave editing for days when the weather isn’t cooperating – basically if I can be climbing or taking more photos that’s what I’ll be doing. Editing can wait.
Now today was a national holiday here, and the weather was great, so I headed down to the crags for a club meet. It’s well into December already, but there we were in T-shirts, enjoying the sunshine. And the rock.
So for today’s photo I’m going back to my visit to CERN a few weeks ago. Our flight back was rather early, and we hit the sunrise as we were flying over the French-Italian Alps. With the relaxed controls on the use of electronic equipment in the cabin I didn’t mind taking my DSLR out for a few snaps. I had never tried anything like this before – the closest I had done was with a film SLR from a helicopter – so there’s of course a bit of a learning curve. I am reasonably happy with some of the shots, though if I had to do it again I would set things up to use a much faster shutter speed. Let’s just say it’s hard to avoid blur when hurtling through the air in an aluminum can.
